Chicken, Black Olive & Tomato Pasta Salad

Hello from sunny France! Here's the recipe for a big bowl of pasta salad I made for one of our family sit down lunches. It was so tasty and filled us up until dinner time.

What you'll need:

-Gluten free pasta
-1 ripe avocado
-1 large tomato
-Fresh basil leaves
-Black olives
-Red pesto
-Olive Oil
-Salt & pepper

How to make:

Boil the pasta until soft, then once cooked, drain the hot water and allow the pasta to cool slightly. Whilst the pasta cooks, place some black olives and about 3 tablespoons of red pesto into a blender and blitz all together. Remove from the blender and stir into the pasta. Chop up the avocado, tomato and fresh basil and add to the pasta. I used already cooked chicken for this dish as it meant all I needed to do was tear off bits of chicken then mix it in with the rest of the ingredients. Of course, you can cook some chicken fresh for this dish but when on holiday I like to make it as quick and easy as possible! Drizzle with a little olive oil and add some black pepper and serve up in a big bowl to share.
