Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 x 340g box of gluten-free spaghetti
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 3 zucchini, diced
  • 1 large cucumber, diced
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 green pepper, diced
  • 1 red onion, diced
  • 1 can sliced ripe olives, drained
  • 1 bottle Italian salad dressing (gluten-free)
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, extra for garnish
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp celery seed
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder

Method

  • Cook all your gluten-free pasta until fully cooked through, but slightly al-dente. Drain, and let sit in cold water (this will stop it from cooking further). Once cooled, drain again and transfer to a large mixing bowl.
  • Add in all your chopped veggies, and olives. Top with Italian salad dressing, Parmesan cheese, sesame seeds, paprika, celery seed and garlic powder. Toss well until completely coated.
  • Cover and store in the fridge (overnight if needed).
  • Garnish with extra Parmesan cheese, and serve!
