Pasta Salad | Pasta Recipe

Vik doesn't like Pasta, that's why  I never tried but it was a golden chance for me to try something new,I went to Bangalore to see my Best friend n Off-course It was nice time n one day she told  me to cook pasta n I tried it and it came yummmmm:))

Preparation Time 15 min.
Cooking Time 5 min.
Serving 4

2 cups Penne pasta(I used macaroni), cooked according to package directions, drained and rinsed
juice of 1 lemon
2       cloves garlic, mashed and finely minced

3/4   cup hung curd
5       tbsp cheese Spread
1/4    cup cottage cheese
1/2    cup finely chopped red capsicum (I used all three colored capsicums)
½      cup cucumber, diced
½      onion, finely chopped
8-10  cheery tomato, halved 
5       tbsp finely chopped fresh basil leaves
Few black Olives (optional)
Salt and black pepper (according to taste)


Put drained warm pasta in a large bowl and toss with the lemon juice.
In a cup or small bowl, combine the garlic with the hung curd and cheese spread. Stir into the pasta.
Add all chopped vegetables. Toss to combine thoroughly. If desired, add more cheese. Taste and add salt and pepper, as needed.

In pasta salad Mayonnaise is essential part but i tried with out it and Really it came out just Yummmm!!!!
If it's chilled taste is very nice.
