Pasta Salad

I am a great fan of Pasta and more so, Pasta salads. I had read Jamie Oliver's version of Pasta salad sometime ago and found it interesting. I tweaked his recipe to include my favourite ingredients and the outcome was superb. This is one of the best meals that can be packed off for a picnic or an outing.


Ingredients:

Whole wheat Pasta twists
Cherry tomatoes
Sweetcorn kernels
Baby Corn
Mixed bell peppers (I have used Red and Yellow here)
Salt & Pepper
Olive Oil for the dressing

Bring a large pan of salted water to boil. Put in the pasta and cook until al dente. Drain and drizzle some olive over it.
Add the other ingredients, mix well and put it in the refriegerator. You may add some italian seasoning as well.
Enjoy your chilled pasta salad as a yummy snack or a meal.

This goes to Presto Pasta Nights started by Ruth of Once upon a feast and currently hosted by The Sweet Kitchen.
