This pasta salad will quickly climb your party food top ten. It’s packed with all the seaside flavours of the Mediterranean, with Kumato tomatoes, Kalamata olives, vegan feta cheese, fresh basil, and vegan bacon strips.

This dish is well suited for parties, as you can prepare it in advance and store for up to three days. Worried about leftovers? Don’t! There won’t be any! This is way too delicious to be left behind!

To prepare it, cook the pasta (choose small size pasta) in abundant vegetable broth by following the cooking instructions on the package. When al dente, drain it and set aside to cool down for a few minutes. In the meanwhile, rinse and quarter the tomatoes, halve the olives, dice the vegan feta cheese, and cut the vegan bacon into thin strips. Cook the bacon in a little olive oil, until well crispy.

Transfer the pasta into a large bowl, add the tomatoes, olives, feta, and bacon. Adjust the seasoning with a little salt and pepper, drizzle with a little oil, and mix well. Finally, add the fresh basil and the basil paste. Mix again and your pasta is ready for the party!

Steps

1
Done
10 minutes

Cook the pasta

Bring a large pot of water to the boil. Add the vegetable powder, then the pasta. Cook according to the instructions on the package (typically, small pasta cooks in 4-5 minutes). When al dente, drain, and transfer to a large salad bowl. Open the pasta with a fork, so it won't stick together.

Slice and dice

Rinse well the tomatoes and quarter them. Halve the olives, and slice the bacon into thin strips. Heat a little olive oil in a non-stick pan, and cook the bacon strips until they're crispy. Finally, pick the fresh basil leaves and roughly chop them.

Mix and serve
