Pasta Salad

Method

Cook pasta according to packet instructions then drain.

While the pasta is cooking, cook the bacon in a large pan until crispy and then drain on absorbent paper.

In a large bowl add the cheese, tomatoes, bacon, olives, canned tuna, basil and the cooked pasta. Toss all the ingredients together and then dress with vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper.

Best serve at room temperature but may be served cold.
