Lunch Box - Summer Pasta Salad

Main: Summer Pasta Salad
Fruit: Apple slices
Treat: World's Best Brownie

Today's lunch is a hasty assortment of whatever was in my fridge and cupboard on the weekend, but I'm quite pleased with how colourful it turned out. I had wanted to buy tropical fruit this week as summer is finally on it's way, but a small cash-flow problem made me settle for boring (cheap!) apples instead.

Summer Pasta Salad
Makes 4 lunch-box servings

4 cups of uncooked pasta
1 small red onion finely sliced
200 grams Greek feta
Cherry or baby plum tomatoes, halved
8 sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
1 large roasted red pepper, chopped (I used the jarred variety, but you could roast the pepper or use raw pepper if you wanted)
Pepper to season

Cook the pasta, cool, then mix all ingredients. You can use a little extra oil from the sun-dried tomatoes as a dressing, but with so many flavours going on in this salad that's all you'll need.

*Olives or fresh torn basil would be a wonderful addition if you have it!
