This is a simple and delicious pasta dish that is just as good served hot as it is cold. It makes a great lunch for friends because you can make it a day in advance, so you can relax and enjoy the company.
1 portion vegetables
The pasta can be served straight away if you prefer it warm, or can be made in advance and the flavours allowed to develop — they will improve over time. Allow it to come to room temperature, or warm up slightly in the microwave to remove the chill.
You could use roma tomatoes instead of cherry tomatoes. Cut into quarters before roasting. * For a more leafy salad, add 100 g rocket or baby spinach leaves to the salad when you add the parsley.
