This pasta salad is substantial enough to be a meal in itself. Nice bread and a glass of white wine wouldn't hurt either!


Serves: 6 

  • 500g bow tie (farfalle) pasta
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon dried dill
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper, or to taste
