A super simple Italian Pasta Salad recipe made with sausages. It’s super easy to make and can be easily stored in a mason jar for picnics and lunches!


  • 6 sausages
  • 300g dried pasta
  • 15 cherry tomatoes
  • 1/2 cucumber
  • 1 yellow pepper
  • 1520 black olives
  • 2 spring onions
  • 23 tbsp Italian salad dressing


  1. Cook the sausages however you like them. I prefer to bake mine but grilling or frying is absolutely fine too.
  2. Whilst the sausages are cooking, add the pasta to a pan of boiling water and cook according to the package instructions. Once cooked, drain the pasta in a colander and run under cold water until cooled.
  3. When the sausages are cooked, cut them into bite sized slices and leave to cool.
  4. Meanwhile, chop the salad ingredients.
  5. At this point you can either mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl or else you can add each of them individually to a mason jar, starting with the salad dressing and the pasta and then layering on the salad.
  6. Store in the fridge for 24 hours or until ready to eat.
