  • 60 grams walnuts
  • 1 Fresh Basil (Large Handful)

Recipe's preparation

  1. Weigh in 1200g Water to TM Bowl

  2. Insert internal simmer basket and weigh in 200g Spiral Pasta. Add a small drizzle of olive oil to avoid the starch 'foam' that can occur when cooking!

  3. Cook pasta according to packet direction time + 6min to allow your water to come to the boil. (ie 11min cook pasta = 17 mins) at 100C, speed 4.  * because pasta can prone to sticking together as the expand, I also recomment stopping and stirring midway through cooking time.

  4. Check pasta cooked al dente, otherwise continue for a few minutes more, on 100C, speed 4.

  5. Place pasta in a large serving bowl to cool a little while making the dressing, and then rinse and dry your TM Bowl.

  6. Add clove of garlic to TM Bowl and chop 3 sec, sp 7.

  7. Weigh in remaining dressing ingredients and mix 4 sec, sp 5.

  8. Add dressing to the pasta, along with drained capsicum, and then using your hands crumble walnut pieces as you add them to the bowl, as well as the feta pieces and roughly torn basil leaves.

Tip

This is a regullar and my family bbq's - I hope you enjoy!

* Load up your pasta salad with more capsicum (or walnuts/feta for that matter) if you wish! I use the Sandhurst 260g Char-grilled Capsicum jar, but Always fresh Fire Roasted Red Pepper Strips comes in 340g. Capriccio Fire Roasted Sweet Red Peppers comes in 450g jars- save the rest for pizza toppers or another recipe on the Recipe Community that requires capsicum! Check the ingredients on the jar, as sometimes it's nice to also use 40g of the oil in place of the oil in this recipe so it doesn't go to waste!
