We love the creamy pasta salad you can buy pre-made and packaged from the deli section of supermarkets, however it’s not the cheapest or freshest! This is a quick and easy creamy pasta salad I mix up when we are craving it, and it is great in the school lunchbox too.

 

Easy Creamy Pasta Salad

Ingredients:

250g dried macaroni pasta

1 carrot, grated

1 stick celery, finely diced

1/2 small red capsicum, finely diced

1 cup grated tasty cheese

1 tbs fresh parsley, finely diced

1/4 cup mayonnaise

1/4 cup sour cream

2 tbs milk

1/2 tsp dijon mustard

Salt & pepper, to taste

 

Method:

  1. Cook pasta in boiling water until al dente. Drain in a colander, then rinse under cold running water to cool. Leave to continue draining while you prepare the rest of the ingredients.
  2. In a small bowl or jug, combine mayonnaise, sour cream, milk, mustard, salt and pepper together.
  3. In a large bowl, combine cooled pasta, carrot, celery, capsicum, cheese, parsley and dressing, mix until combine. Allow to rest in fridge for at least 1 hour for pasta to absorb dressing.
