DSCN0555

The weather here in Stoke-on-Trent is glorious today and I’ve got the perfect lunch for such great weather! This is a really quick, simple and satisfying meal that is ideal for al fresco dining. Picture this; you are sitting on your porch, lawn or patio, tucking into a delicious bowl of pasta, olives and tomatoes, watching the kids run around the garden. Sold? Me too!

I’m not feeling too chatty today as this lovely weather is bringing on a migraine, but do enjoy the recipe and hopefully I’ll be back on form by Friday!

    • Thanks for your comment! Our garden has just been renovated as it was in a terrible state when we moved in. I just can’t wait to be relaxing outside with food and friends!
