I can eat pasta every day. Literally every day and for every meal. I don’t think I will ever tire from having pasta.
I am totally in love with Italy and all things Italian, especially the food culture and Mediterranean flavours. The past two years I’ve travelled to different parts of Italy as part of my school’s annual residential visits (I’m a teacher) and every time I either learn a new flavour or I come across a new pasta type that I hadn’t had before. This year, in Sicily, I found Busiate, a tightly wound coil-like pasta that is perfect with a meaty sauce.
Unfortunately I couldn’t find busiate here in England so I’ve had to make do with some Fusilli to make this pasta salad with a Mediterranean twist.
This dish is perfect as a side salad at a braai or as part of your Summertime Sunday lunch.
