This Easy Pasta Salad with Tomatoes, Olives & Basil is a five ingredient dish that makes the most out of fresh summer produce.
I love Chickapea pasta for a healthy salad and the shells seem to be especially well suited to this simple dish. This pasta contains only chickpeas and lentils It’s also packed with protein and fiber – perfect for a quick and easy meatless meal. Use good quality olive oil of your choice. because the success of this dish is entirely dependent on a high quality olive oil.
Let your tomato mixture marinate for a minimum of 30 minutes and then add your cooked pasta. That simple! I like to drizzle a little more oil on top once they are combined but that is optional.
