Pasta salad is such a popular recipe! Perfect for barbecues, family celebrations or other occasions – pasta salad is always possible! In this post I’ll show you a delicious recipe for an Italian pasta salad with tomatoes, mozzarella, rocket and pine nuts.
Italian pasta salad is often prepared in many ways. But what mostly belongs to it are tomatoes, pine nuts and rocket! These ingredients go really well together and, above all, can be eaten wonderfully cold.
For the noodles, I opted for delicious mussel noodles. These are usually available in a well-stocked supermarket or directly in Italian specialist shops and make the pasta salad a little highlight. There are also fresh and sweet cherry tomatoes, creamy mozzarella, spicy rocket and roasted pine nuts. The dressing is also simple and quick: all you need is some red pesto (Pesto Rosso), olive oil, and salt and pepper. If you like, you can of course also make your own pesto. However, I opted for the faster option!
