Time Saver Tips

It’s a good idea to prepare the veg whilst the pasta is cooking.

Tips for Kids

Use their favourite pasta shape, such as twirls or shells.



  1. Cook the pasta in fast-boiling water until just tender but with ‘bite’ (al dente).
  2. Drain the pasta and rinse in cold water. Stir in 1 tablespoon olive oil.
  3. Prepare the vegetables. Wash the pepper, tomatoes and spring onions. De-seed, slice and dice the pepper. Quarter the tomatoes and slice the spring onions. Add all vegetables to the pasta.
  4. Squeeze the lemon and add the juice to the remaining olive oil. Whisk together, or mix with a fork, and add to the pasta.
  5. Toss the ingredients together. Serve immediately or use as a lunchbox meal.
