Pasta Salad with Grilled Veg

A delish recipe from our friends at Farm to Fork

Serves 4
Preparation time 10 minutes
Cooking time 20 minutes


250 g macaroni pasta (can also use curls or elbow pasta)

sea salt and cracked black pepper to taste

2 long red chilli

2 medium sized zucchini, sliced diagonally

300 g green beans, trimmed

250 g Coles vine cherry tomatoes

1 clove garlic, finely grated

⅓ cup (80 ml) Squeaky Gate extra virgin olive oil

zest and juice of ½ lemon

1 cup mint, leaves picked

1 tbsp Squeaky Gate caramalized balsamic vinegar

½ cup parmesan cheese, shaved from a block with a veg peeler


Bring a pot of salted water up to the boil. Cook the pasta for 10 – 12 minutes, or until al dente. Drain the pasta and set aside.

Heat a BBQ plate or grill pan over a medium heat. Toss the chillies and vegetables in 30 mls of the olive oil and season with sea salt.
Grill for 6 – 8 minutes or until charred and tender, but still have some texture.

Chop the chilli into rings and remove the vines from the tomatoes. Place all the warm vegetables into a large bowl and toss with the garlic, pasta, lemon zest, lemon juice and remaining oil. Allow to cool slightly in the bowl.

Toss the mint leaves through the salad and place onto a serving platter. Top with shaved parmesan, balsamic vinegar, cracked black pepper and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.
