Lumaconi Pasta with Sun-Dried Tomatoes, Black Olives, Capers and Goat’s Cheese

Lumaconi pasta with sun-dried tomatoes, Moroccan dry black olives, capers, coriander, fresh basil, sea salt and goats cheese.


If you’re in need of some inspiration for your midweek meals, then look no further.

This vegetarian pasta dish is not only packed full of flavour, but it’s also quick and easy to make. As much as I love cooking, as a busy #mumboss, the prospect of slaving over a hot stove for hours on end is the last thing on my mind. I won’t scrimp on flavour despite me opting for ‘fast food’ though and this pasta dish ticks all the family’s boxes as we adore olives here.

Do let me know in the comments if you try this dish or any other recipes on the blog. We keep tubs of basil growing in the kitchen window and the kids love to see it flourish and then on their plate.
