Manuka Honey Recipe for Ramadan - Tomato Pesto Pasta Salad

Ramadan is a time to get creative in the kitchen!

During Ramadan everybody is looking for some inspiration when it comes to creating healthy meals for yourself and your loved ones.

The Halal Bites website offers some great recipe ideas for quickly prepared and none the less delicious salads for you to try.

We recommend you use a Manuka Honey multifloral blend or lower MGO honey for baking and cooking. If you select 'HALAL' in the side menu filter only halal honeys will be displayed. Please enjoy this as part of your special meal with loved ones.


Makes 4 servings

  • 250g of farfalle
  • 2 cups fresh basil leaves
  • 2 tablespoons virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons of honey
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled
  • 1 cup red cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 cup yellow cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 80g fresh mozzarella cheese, cut into cubes
  • 30g Romano cheese, grated


  1. Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and fat; drain. Place pasta in a large bowl and let it cool down.
  2. Combine basil and next 5 ingredients (through garlic) in the bowl of a food processor; process until smooth. Add basil mixture, tomatoes and half of mozzarella to pasta; toss to combine. Top with remaining mozzarella and Romano cheese. Serve immediately.
