    Can anyone recommend any pasta salad combinations that are either free or low syn values. Im in an office and only have access to a fridge so running out of lunchtime ideas?

    Thanks

    It might not sound exciting but it's quite yummy. I fry some onion, mushrooms and pepper. Boil some green beans and whatever those mini corn on the cob things are called. Stir it through pasta with some chopped up boiled eggs and use some of the craft french vinagarette (which I think is free but could be mistaken) to moisten it a bit. I normally make a great big bowl and leave it in the fridge for a few days taking what I need for lunch.

    I'm sure someone has a tastier recipe but I quite enjoy that one.

    Sometimes I have a really simple pasta salad with chunks of cheese from my HEXA (sometimes throw in another HEX if I'm on a green day), sliced red onion or pickled onions, halved cherry toms and some EL salad cream (1syn per tbsp)

    I like fried onions, garlic and mushrooms (could also add leeks, peppers etc etc). Then I add a spoon of Low Garlic and herb philly or quark (depends on how I am with syns and hex's) into the pan, and a splosh of milk and a crumble of a chicken oxo cube and mix in pasta.

    Totally devine, and free if you work it right :D

    These all sound great. I guess I could experiment with different combinations to c wot I like the best. I done sum cold past and a spoonfull of low pesto but then I realised it wasnt free. Thanks for the suggestions x

    I often make pasta with passata & throw in onion, peppers, toms, sweetcorn. If you have a microwave add quorn (cooked obviously) & heat it up, quorn & pasta is my fav lunch.
