Who doesn’t like pasta; I love them. They are cheesey and yummy. But since summers are here in full swing I thought to post my very own pasta salad recipe. It’s pretty quick and easy recipe. I usually make double the quantity so that I can enjoy leftovers but even that gets over.😄
Cold Pasta Salad is your perfect salad for summery days. Minimal cook, make ahead meal.
I also have used leftover chicken from my dinner last night. The sauce used is a basic wholewheat sauce (read recipe). This recipe can be arranged in a oven proof dish and baked as well but I like to eat it cold. Just gather whatever veggies you find in your fridge and get chopping.
Directions to make Cold Pasta Salad-
1 cup shredded leftover chicken
1 &1/2 cup of finely chopped veggies (I have used cabbage, capsicum, bell peppers, carrot, cucumbers, baby tomatos)
3 cups pasta
Salt & Pepper to taste
1 &1/2 cup white sauce (read recipe)
Boil the pasta as per instructions. It should be fully cooked (not al-dente). Let it cool down.
Now mix this with the white sauce and veggies.
Chill for at least an hour before serving.
You can make this salad ahead of time for a dinner party. 😀
