Corn & Peas Pasta Salad

It happens to a super hit recipe in my family and most of the time I cook it just to see that glint in Vikas’s eyes when he eats this salad. Yeah its a salad but can be served as a full dress meal for lunch or dinner and this quantity will serve 2-3 people..
I had used Penne pasta but one can choose which ever he/she likes even spaghetti can be used for this dish.
Penne Pasta: 1 Cup
Tomato: 5-6 Medium
Mayonnaise: 3-4 Tbsp
Capsicum: 1 Medium
Oil: 2 Tbsp
Garlic: 3 Cloves
Onion: 1 Medium
Salt: To Taste
Red Chilly Pwdr: To Taste
Tomato Ketchup: 1 Tbsp
Pizza Seasoning: 1 Tbsp
Sugar: 1 Tbsp
Olives: 3 Piece
Frozen Sweet Corn: 1/3 Cup
Frozen Peas: 1/3 Cup
Water: 1/2 Cup + to boil
  • Boil Pasta in salted water till al-dante.
  • Roast capsicum on gas till black marks appear on its skin and chop.
  • Mix mayonnaise, capsicum, pasta and keep aside.
  • Make slit on tomatoes skin and put it in boiling water for mins. then remove the skin.(I used 2 country tomatoes as they are more sour then the normal ones if you are using the normal ones  then add li’l vinegar to the sauce).
  • Put tomatoes in a blender and make puree.
  • Heat oil in a pan add chopped garlic sauté a bit and add onion cook for 3-4 mins.
  • Add tomato puree, water, salt and red chilly powder and cook till sauce like consistency.
  • Add tomato ketchup, pizza seasoning, sugar then check seasoning and adjust if required.

  • Add peas, corn & olives to the sauce and cook till peas are soft. ( I used frozen peas if you are using fresh ones the add it before so that the are cooked properly).
  • Add this sauce to pasta and keep in fridge once it reaches room temperature.
  • Serve it cold.
