Since summer seems to have arrived, let’s get creative with salads. The sort of salads that you can bring to a bbq and that will make an entrance. Pasta salad is a usual favourite and a large bowl never fails to have takers. However, why not try something a little different and swap the usual pasta for some black bean pasta? It looks pretty amazing when served and tastes just as good – only in a more unusual way. The roasted veggies give it the health kick and dressed with olive oil and lemon, it has a distinctly Mediterranean flavour.


Here's what you'll need...

  • 100g black bean pasta
  • 2 courgettes
  • 2 small red peppers
  • 200g cherry tomatoes
  • 1 bunch spring onions
  • 1 bunch parsley
  • 1 lemon
  • 3tbs extra virgin olive oil
  • salt & pepper for seasoning

    Place the vegetables onto a baking tray, drizzle with olive oil and season. Roast for 30 minutes turning the vegetables occasionally.

    Cook the pasta for one minute less than it says on the packaging – this will ensure it keeps its shape/doesn’t fall apart before serving.
