peppers (baked in the oven and then mixed with lettuce).

Serves 2

2oz small pasta shapes
2 tablespoons sunflower oil
1 teaspoon tomato paste (or ketchup)
1 teaspoon wine vinegar
Half a carrot, diced
Quarter of a red pepper, diced
1 tomato, peeled and diced
2oz mild or medium Cheddar

Cook the pasta. Meanwhile mix the oil, tomato paste and vinegar in a bowl, add the carrot, pepper, tomato and cheese and toss to mix.

Drain the pasta and add to the salad, toss together. Allow to cool and then refridgerate overnight.

Or just make up a tomato sauce with whatever veg you have in the fridge, and throw in some Borlotti beans or some chopped cooked meat, then combine it with the pasta.

Ah - if they won't eat the peppers, then just add another veg that they will (mushrooms, courgettes, sweetcorn).

Thanks WWB

I was thinking sweetcorn, mayo and bacon, never thought to add other veg thanks

my chargs LOVE this pasta sald...

i just sort of chuck in some cooked frozen peas, cooked frozen sweet corn, rotellini (ex sp) (wheel) pasta and mix it up with mayonaisse... DELICIOUSE... and the wheels 'hold' the peas and sweet corn ttoo which is a bonus!

Pasta shells or bows, mixed with chopped pepper (red), corn, mayo and sweet chilli sauce. Mmmmmm. Oh, maybe not suitable for kids though!!
