1 cup bread crumbs
A handful of flat leaf parsley - finely chopped
A handful of mint - finely chopped
A handful of rosemary - finely chopped
Salt and pepper
3-4 Tbsp Olive oil
2 Tbsp Dijon mustard

For the Pasta Salad:
450g / 16oz pack vegetable spirals
1 pot fresh basil pesto
1 bag baby spinach
1 punnet vine cherry tomato
