Pesto Pasta Salad

Pesto Pasta Salad

A lovely summery pasta salad to be enjoyed as part of a BBQ, Picnic or a light main meal. I made my own pesto but a tub of fresh store bought would be absolutely fine. If you are not keen on olives (and I wasn't until a few years ago) just add in some salad vegetables e.g. chopped spring onions, cucumber etc to bulk it out a bit.
