Ham & Pasta Salad
Prep Time: 15min; Cooking Time: 15min; Serves: 6
350gm Penne (I used spiral pasta as that's what I had on hand)
250gm green beans (original recipe suggested broccoli)
100gm thickly sliced boneless leg ham, cut into strips
2 tsp Dijon mustard
1/2 cup who egg mayonnaise
salt & freshly ground pepper
1 stalk spring onion (original recipe suggested 2 Tbsp snipped chives)

  1. Cook the pasta in large pan of boiling salted water according to packet directions until al dente, adding beans towards the end of cooking time to boil for a few minutes until tender.
  2. Drain together and refresh under cold running water.
  3. Combine the ham, pasta and beans in a dish.
  4. Mix the mustard and mayonnaise in a small bowl and season to taste. Fold the mayonnaise through the salad and scatter with the spring onion.
