Pesto Yorkshire Pasta Salad

By: @yorkshire_foodies

When we received this gifted pasta from @yorkshirepasta we wanted to try it straight away, so enjoyed a pesto pasta salad for lunch using the Tortiglioni pasta. This pasta is amazing! It honestly tastes like it’s been freshly made here in our kitchen! Plus it’s vegan, vegetarian & produced here in Yorkshire…what more can you ask for in a pasta?! Oh an eco-friendly, recyclable and attractive packaging that’s what ☺️
