creamy pasta salad..

Last month I went to one of my friend’s  birthday party.. There 1st time I had one creamy pasta salad..what a pretty salad it was..It was amazing...i just loved that & immediately I decided to make that pasta salad @ my home. I love pasta and if it is creamy then i double love it..The creamy pasta, juicy tomatoes and crunchy veggies  would make for a great combo! I couldn’t wait to make it. I made the salad & it came out very well & was so delicious. My husband loved it as well & wanted to eat the whole bowl :) friend here is recipe..:)

1 cucumber chopped
½ cup onion chopped
½ cup sweet corn
½ cup Celery

½ cup chopped tomatoes/ Grape tomatoes
1 cup Mayonnaise
2-3 tbsp sour cream
2tblsp  small cubed or shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Cook pasta according to package directions. Strain. Run cold water over the top until the pasta is cooled.
Take a large bowl . Whisk  mayonnaise, sour cream, cheese, chilli flakes, garlic powder & salt together. Stir cooled pasta, tomatoes & all veggies  into the dressing. Toss to combine. You can eat right away, or  Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
