Weekend Meal

I stumbled upon this website, Kitchen Sisters, when I was looking on some easy pasta recipe. I am craving a homemade pasta for the last couple of days but haven't decided yet what pasta I really want to cook. And then, this recipe has given me such an inspiration to cook my kind of pasta. This one is "Pasta salad with olives and sundried tomatoes". Perfect for the weekend meal =) Have a great weekend. 

Pasta salad with olives and sundried tomatoes.
Yield: 20 persons (as a side dish)

750 gr pasta
300 gr sundried tomatoes (with oil)
120 gr black olives
5 eggs
250 gr grated cheese
3 little red onions

  1. Bring your water for the pasta and your water for the eggs to a boil. When the water boils, cook your pasta al dente and boil the eggs for about 6 minutes. You want them to be a bit undercooked so that your eggyolks will combine everything.
  2. In the meantime, cut your onions into very small pieces, pitted your olives and cut these into small rings and slice up your sundried tomatoes into small strips.
  3. Now combine into a big bowl your onions, olives, sundried tomatoes and the oil from your sundried tomatoes. Add to this your grated cheese and mix well. When your pasta is done, add those straight from the pan (when they are still very warm) into your bowl. Mix well so that everything combines and your cheese can melt. 
  4. The last step is to slice your eggs and add these. By doing this as a last step, the eggyolks can still combine everything and give it a glaze but stay intact as well.
