Pasta salads can easily be made in larger batches so you can have some on the next day. Cooked prawns are a quick way to add some protein to your pasta salad so it keeps you fuller for longer. Enjoy hot or cold!
  • 350g pasta
  • 200g green beans halved
  • 100g pesto
  • 140g light crème fraîche
  • 200g cooked king prawns
  • Zest 1 lemon, juice of ½
  • 50g pine nuts
  • 70g bag rocket
  1. Cook the pasta following pack instructions, adding the beans for the final 2 mins. Meanwhile, toast the pine nuts in a dry pan.
  2. Drain the pasta, reserving a cup of water. Return the pasta and beans to the pan, and add the pesto, crème fraîche, prawns, lemon zest and juice, and pine nuts. Season well.
  3. If the sauce is a little thick, add a splash of the pasta water. When you’re ready to serve, scatter over the rocket. Eat hot, or leave to go cold, put in the fridge and eat as a pasta salad.
