Bow tie salad with summer greens and pesto
Most children love pasta and this cold salad is a good way to include more vegetables in the meal.


  • ½ packet of farfalle pasta
  • ½ cup each of peas, asparagus, courgettes and mange tout
  • ½ cup ready-made pesto sauce


  1. Cook the pasta according to packet instructions and allow to cool.
  2. Cut the asparagus and courgettes into even pieces.
  3. Blanch all the vegetables briefly in boiling water, so they are still quite crispy, then plunge them into cold water.
  4. Mix the pesto into the cool pasta. Add the vegetables and toss to combine.
  5. Check whether you need salt and pepper.
