Pasta tossed in delicious basil pesto sauce and assembled at the table with various antipasto toppings such as prosciutto, cherry tomatoes, feta cheese and olives.
1. Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil. Add pasta and cook according to packet instructions (see step 2).

2. Trim broccolini and add to boiling pasta water for the last 2-3 minutes (see notes). Drain and rinse in cold water.

Place broccolini in a bowl and take to the table.

3. Use scissors to roughly chop the tomatoes and olives from the Greek mix tub, then transfer to a bowl. Arrange prosciutto (see notes), diced avocado, halved cherry tomatoes in bowls and take to the table.

4. Toss the cooked pasta with pesto in a serving bowl (see notes). Season to taste with salt and pepper.

5. Serve pasta at the table for everyone to assemble their own bowl.

Notes:
- Add broccolini at any time when pasta is boiling and remove using a slotted spoon prior to draining the pasta, if preferred.
- Cook prosciutto if you prefer it crispy.
- Serve pesto and pasta separately if kids prefer.
- No pork option - prosciutto is replaced with turkey. Slice to serve.
