My friend is coming for lunch tomorrow with her 2 kids and as I usually do very boring lunches of sandwiches or scrambled egg on toast or soup for me and the girls, I thought I'd better make more effort for our visitors!! I fancy doing some sort of pasta salad, just something easy and straightforward, has anyone got any foolproof recipes to share with me please??? Thank you!

I used one of those Dolmio stir in sauces on Sunday - the kids demolished the bowl! I've never seen pasta get eaten so fast in my life. It was a simple tomato & basil one.
Otherwise they love tuna pasta with peppers, onion and sweetcorn. Nothing fancy. Keep it simple.

Oooh is that hot or cold Fi? We never have philly but might be a quick dinner H can do the kids when I start my new job.

Thanks. Belle do you use mayo or anything in the tuna pasta as I'm always wary of pasta salads being too dry?

Definitely sounds like one to try Kellfi, does it work best hot or cold?

I do pasta, red kidney beans, peppers, sweetcorn and tuna. Then to make it a bit moist i've been using fat free fromage frais rather than mayonaise, i've also used the hellmans fat free dressing that they do too.

thanks chids I wouldn't have thought of using kidney beans my kids love them.

Yep mayo, def mayo. We use Asda Extra light so it's only something like 30cal per tablespoon.

I just use tuna and sweetcorn! Yum, making me hungry now! Sometimes I do come chicken bacon and sweetcorn. We use that mayo too Belle, Tastes fine! PJ xx

Hottish, cook and drain the pasta, drain well, stir in the Philly, ham, peas and sweetcorn, the longest thing is waiting for the pasta to cook lol. H makes it a lot for L when I am at work
