Farfalle is also known as “the bow-tie pasta”, but there’s no need to dress-up to enjoy this elegant salad.


Dry pasta

200 g, farfalle

Green string beans

200 g, cut into 3cm lengths

Lemon juice

2 tbs

Olive oil

1 tbs

Fresh chives

1 tbs, finely chopped

Fresh flat-leaf parsley

2 tbs, finely chopped

Cherry tomatoes

250 g, halved

Tuna, canned in springwater, drained

150 g, (185g can)

Reduced fat feta cheese

75 g, crumbled


  1. Cook pasta in a large saucepan of boiling salted water following packet instructions, or until just tender. Add green beans for the last 2 minutes of cooking. Drain, refresh under cold running water and drain again, then transfer to a large bowl.
  2. Combine lemon juice, olive oil, fresh chives and parsley in a small bowl. Add herb mixture, along with tomatoes, tuna and feta, to pasta. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper and toss to combine.


TIP: You can use any type of short pasta, such as fusilli, macaroni or casarecce, to create this satisfying weekday salad.
