Tesco finest Gigli pasta & bean salad
Customer recipe by Sara Boorman
Added 54 months ago

I am testing Tesco Finest dried pasta for the Tesco Orchard so I got to try this delicious pasta for free.

Cook the Gigli pasta as per the instructions on the pack. when it is ready drain it & put it in a large bowl. Mix in some olive oil so the pasta does not stick together.

Add the tin of tuna flaked & drained. Chop the red onion finely & add that too. Then add the drained can of mixed beans & the drained can of black olives & a little salt.

Chop some flat leaf parsley (as much as you like) & stir it in with the rest of the ingredients. Add more olive oil if you want to.

Your salad is now ready to serve. If you like you can put some grated Parmesan cheese on top of it or any other cheese you fancy!

You can use any kind of beans you like but buy the ones in brine without a dressing. Both canneloni beans & borlotti beans work well for this recipe.
