Pasta Salad with spiedini


  • 400g fusilli pasta
  • 1 jar Saclà Pesto alla Genovese
  • 300g cherry tomatoes
  • 200g french beans, chopped and lightly boiled
  • 200g courgettes, chopped and lightly boiled
  • 8 mozzarella mini-balls
  • 200g chicken breast, diced in 8 pieces
  • a spoon of your favourite oil
  • black pepper
  • 8 skewers


Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil and cook the pasta according to the packet instructions.
Heat oil in a small non stock pan and gently fry the diced chicken.
Thread alternatively tomatoes, mozzarella and chicken on to wooden or metal skewers.
Make sure the skewers are tightly packed. Toss with the pesto. Drain the pasta well and refresh under running cold water. Transfer to a large serving bowl and stir through the whole jar of Saclà Pesto alla Genovese, the remaining cherry tomatoes previously halved and the cooked vegetables. Season well with plenty of ground black pepper and serve immediately accompanied by the skewers.
Tip: If using wooden skewers, soak for 30 mins in cold water before using
Tip: Thread a variety of combinations on the skewers; olives, zucchini, capsicum and prawns.
