    I usually find that cold pasta is nice with mixed salad (esp with added spring onions and sweetcorn) and a drizzle of light dressing. If you're on EE prawns are nice with it too :)

    I do find you need some kind of dressing that isn't too sticky or the cold pasta can go quite claggy!

    Mix your cold pasta with a small bag of salad leaves, come chopped bacon a couple tablespoons of extra light salad cream and 1-2 tsp of piri piri chicken seasoning. I found this on one of those "I have to use this stuff up" days.
