The sauce was defrosted but I did boil the pasta and grate the parmesan! The sauce was leftover from my last batch. The salad is the fresh star of this meal. I should have put it in the foreground but didn't think of it. The salad contains cucumber, red and yellow cherry tomatoes and chives from the garden. Feta cheese and black olives from the grocer. Some salt and pepper and a little olive oil drizzled over the top and some rice vinegar (or lemon juice) to brighten it up. Toss and enjoy.
