    Perfectionist cook's Note:

    This is a wonderful pasta salad which I have been making for at least 15 years. In fact when I first moved to Greece and my mother visited me a year later, one of the first things she asked me was about how to make this recipe. I have made it for buffets and even for my engagement party and it tastes as good as it looks which is saying something! Enjoy.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 350 g spiral penne (tri-coloured is wonderful) or 350 g wheel pasta (tri-coloured is wonderful)
    • 225 g ham (chopped)
    • 225 g peas
    • 3 tablespoons parmesan cheese (freshly-grated)
    • 2 tablespoons parsley (finely-chopped)



    1. 1
      Boil pasta in a large pot of salted water until firm. (I always add a stock cube to the water to improve the flavour-Maggi pasta stock cubes are ideal.).
    2. 2
      Boil or microwave the peas until tender.
    3. 3
      Add drained pasta, peas, parsley and ham in a large bowl and toss well.
    4. 4
      Shake dressing ingredients together in a jam jar and pour over pasta salad.
    5. 5
      Add parmesan cheese and serve.
    6. 6
      Note: This tastes great the next day.

      Oh this is really good!! I scaled the recipe down to one (very generous!) serving and had this for lunch. Wish I had made 1/2 recipe and had the rest on the next day - I'm sure this is even better after the flavours have had time to meld. Would be a great buffet salad! Thank you for sharing!
