Fill a medium-sized saucepan with enough water to cook your pasta in, add some salt and bring to boil. Add spelt pasta and cook for around 8-10 minutes depending on how firm you want it to be.
While pasta is cooking prepare the vegetables. Chop cucumber, tomatoes, avocado, radishes and black olives. Also, chop some parsley to have it ready for later. Keep it separate.
Add all the vegetables apart from parsley to a medium size bowl and pour over the dressing which you made of olive oil, lemon juice and salt. Stir to combine.
Once the pasta is ready, drain and cool by running cold water over it.
Combine pasta and salad in a bowl and when serving add chopped parsley and pine nuts on top. Delicious and healthy dinner or lunch ready in less than 30 minutes!
You can make this extra delicious by adding some feta or goat's cheese on top. You could experiment with vegetables you use in this pasta salad, so you could try adding spinach, grated carrots and even chopped courgettes.
