Pesto Protein Pasta Salad



ServesPrep. Time
130 mins

Now it's warming up this simple dish can be a main meal or a side salad. The secret is swapping the normal whole wheat pasta for a higher protein (e.g. San Remo Protein Pasta is the best!).


  • 320g whole wheat pasta or protein pulse pasta
  • 360g roasted capsicum, drained, sliced
  • 6 tbsp. basil pesto
  • 1 mozzarella ball, chopped (125g)
  • 120g rocket
  • Salt and pepper

Adam's tip: You can add Chicken breast to this to make a main meal and increase protein!


  1. Cook the pasta according to the instructions on the packaging
  2. Once cooked, drain and rinse under cold running water until cooled
  3. In a large bowl, toss the pasta and the remaining ingredients together until combined
  4. Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve immediately
  5. Alternatively, place in a sealed container and refrigerate for up to 3 days
