This delicious thing is not that pretty, but you can shoosh it up if you choose to. Think red tomatoes, think green basil and plenty of finely grated fluffy white parmesan and it doesn’t look so bad after all!

It is perfect for lunch the day after, so make enough to have leftovers! Originally in Portable Lunches, you can now add this to your Menu Builder! Yummers.

Cook pasta as per packet directions. Drain and place into large mixing bowl.


Place basil, parsley, garlic, vinegar, EVOO and sugar into Thermomix bowl and blend 20 sec/speed 10.


Scrape out and pour over pasta.


Add all remaining ingredients and garnish with extra herbs. Toss gently. Serve warm or cold. This will keep very well in the fridge for around a week.


This salad is perfect to take to the park or beach as it really has nothing in it that will perish without refrigeration. Best kept cool of course, but all good food and safety wise!
