Tri-color Pasta Salad - Independence day Special


Happy Independence day to all my readers :)

Oh yes!! As a food blogger I have used food to wish you all :) Hope you are all enjoying the holiday with your family at home.

Independence day is celebrated by all Indians since 1947 but then I have yet another reason to celebrate this day, its 365 days since I got engaged to my man ;) He even comically says he lost his Independence on Independence day :P lol.

We both are celebrating our day with a delicious pasta salad, what are you all doing this day?



Pasta (bow) - 1 cup
Cherry tomatoes - 10
Broccoli - 1/2
Olive oil - 2 tsp
Pepper - 1 tsp
Salt - for taste
Italian seasoning (mixed herbs) - 2 tsp
Ground flax seeds - 1 tsp



Cook Pasta in a large pot of water along with some salt and oil. Once it gets cooked strain the water and wash under cold water.

Chop the cherry tomatoes into halves.

Boil the broccoli for 3 mins in water.

Take pasta, tomatoes, broccoli in a mixing bowl, add olive oil, salt, pepper, Italian seasoning and crushed flax seeds to it and toss well until well mixed.

Serve and enjoy eating :)



You can add some Italian salad dressing as well to make it more delicious.

Add chilly flakes if you want it spicy.
