Pasta Salad

– 250ml Penne Pasta
– Splash of sesame oil
– ¼ C Spring onions, chopped
– ¼ C Green olives, sliced
– ½ C Cucumber, chopped
– 1 C Chicken, chopped
– Fresh Basil
– 1/2 tsp  Mixed Herbs
– Toasted sesame seeds to serve


Cook pasta according to package instructions

Take the pasta off the stove and immediately toss it in a little oil to keep it from sticking. A flavoured oil is really nice to add another dimension to the salad.

Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and then toss everything together with the pasta. Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds to taste.
