Antipasti Penne Salad

I mentioned before that I like making quick and healthy salads at weekends, especially in summertime. My antipasti penne salad is an all-time favourite around here. This is a vegetarian recipe (serves 4), but for those of you who can't go meatless, simply add a few slivers of air-dried parma ham.


Wie schon mal erwähnt mag ich am Wochenende nicht gerne lange am Herd stehen. So stehen bei uns - besonders in der Sommerzeit - schnelle und gesunde Salate auf dem Speiseplan. Mein Antipasti Penne Salat ist der Renner unter den Salaten. Eigentlich ein vegetarisches Rezept (4 Portionen), kann man bei Bedarf noch dünne Scheiben luftgetrockneten Parmaschinken zugeben (für alle, die nicht fleischlos können).


I like penne for its ability to soak up sauces and oil. Apart from yellow and red cherry tomatoes you'll need a jar of green pesto and a jar of pickled artichoke hearts in oil, mozzarella cheese, spring onions and black pepper.
Halve the tomatoes, slice the cheese and chop the green part of the spring onions. Cook penne (about 300 gr) according to paket instructions, drain and transfer to salad bowl. Add about half a jar of pesto, mix well. Add remaining ingredients and season with freshly ground black pepper. Serve at room temperature.

Ich mag die Penne, weil sie gut Saucen und Öl aufnehmen. Außer rote und gelbe Kirschtomaten benötigt man noch ein Glas grüne Pesto, ein Glas eingelegte Artischockenherzen in Öl, Mozzarella, Frühlingszwiebeln, schwarzen Pfeffer.
Und so geht's: die Tomaten halbieren, den Käse in dünne Scheiben schneiden, nur das Grüne der Frühlingszwiebeln in Ringe schneiden. Die Penne (ca 300 gr) nach Packungsanweisung kochen, abgießen und in eine Salatschüssel geben. Ca. die Hälfte des Pesto untermengen. Restliche Zutaten zufügen und mit frisch gemahlenem schwarzen Pfeffer würzen. Bei Zimmertemperatur servieren.

  5. I love light foods like this for the summer. And then we eat outside on the patio. (Well, if it isn't 300 cabillion degrees outside!)

  7. Hmm Duni,
    das klingt ja sooo lecker ... werd ich bald mal testen!
    Ist ähnlich wie mein Lieblingsnudelsalatrezept, mach einen Salat aus halbierten Kirschtomaten mit Essig und OlivenÖl, Salz und Pfeffer, Basilikum ... dann meng ich noch lauwarme Spirelli drunter und streu Parmesan und eventuell Pinienkerne drüber ... total lekker ;0)
    Liebgruß und schönen Sonntag!

  10. Hi Duni! First of all thank you for the encouraging and comforting words you left in my post. I appreciate it. I must also say, I badly needed it.

    I love penne pasta too. And I guess the pasta already tastes good even without the meat. Fresh vegetables can really make a long way.

    Your pictures are also getting better and better each post. These are so magazine spread worthy Duni. I wish that someone from the publication industry would find your blog and give you such opportunity.
