If you thought pasta dishes are always loaded with calories, due to cheese and white sauce commonly used in their preparation, have a look at this recipe – and you will change your mind. Here, a minimal amount of whole wheat pasta is prepared as a salad along with crunchy and colourful veggies, which not only contribute antioxidants and fibre, but also team up well with the pasta to improve the overall texture and flavour.
Interestingly, the Pasta and Vegetable Salad is not drowned in an oily or creamy dressing; instead it is perked up with a herby tomato salsa, which gives the dish a real boost!
Serve with Hearty Red Lentil Soup and Suran Chana Dal Tikkis .
- Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well while mashing with a back of a spoon. Keep aside.
