Easy Pasta Salad with Artichokes, Olives and Sundried Tomatoes

Pasta is a staple in our household – we have it at least once a week. It can be super quick and easy to rustle something up – even if its just plain pasta with some parmesan on top. We love our food and nothing makes us happier than sitting down to eat together and more often than not we’ll have an Italian dish of sorts which is where Ciao Gusto comes in.

Ciao Gusto Deli has partnered up with Ocado to offer their customers a wide range of authentic Italian produce which you can easily add into your weekly online shop. They stock store cupboard essentials such as Sundried Tomatoes, Artichokes, and Balsamic vinegar – perfect ingredients to make a pasta salad with.

  1. Mmmm! I wish I could get my kids eating a little healthier and this recipe looks ideal! #kcacols

    • We always manage to hide lots of veggies in our pasta sauce so maybe you could give that a try? We roast things like onions, peppers and courgettes and blend it all up and add to tinned tomatoes or pasta x
