Recipe by Lalaloula
This is a loosely mediterranian inspired spaghetti salad. It is packed with flavour and just a little different due to the use of spaghetti instead of penne pasta. If you like feel free to add in other veggies of your choice (celery, carrot, bell pepper, broccoli, olives). It can be gluten-free if you ensure that your pasta is gluten-free (corn, rice, quinoa, millet, soy) and your pesto sauce also. I hope youll enjoy this salad as much as we do! :)
