Italian Beans and Salmon Kilner Jar Lunch

Heart outline Heart 12 people Clock graphic 20 Min Cutlery circle Serves 2

A great meal prep idea for midweek lunches, these look great in lidded glass jars, but you can use whatever sealed containers you like 


  • 1 John West No Drain Fridge Pot Pink Salmon
  • 75g fusilli pasta 
  • 2 heaped tbs fresh pesto (or from a jar) 
  • 100g cherry tomatoes, halved 
  • 100g cannellini beans in water, rinsed and drained 
  • Few thin slices red onion  
  • 2 handfuls rocket leaves 

Step 1

Cook the pasta until almost done, but not quite (it will soften a little in the jar). Drain then cool in cold water 

Step 2

Spoon the pesto into the bottom of the jars, add the cold pasta, then the tomatoes 

Step 3

Divide the salmon between the jars then top with the beans, onions and rocket. Close the lids and keep in the fridge for up to two days 


This is also great with borlotti or haricot beans
