Delicious Curry Pasta Salad

Follow on Bloglovin
I can never go wrong when I offer up my family some sort of pasta side dish for dinner. Everyone loves them, hot or cold, and they never take more than 15 minutes to make. And I also love how versatile they are in terms of adding different ingredients, spices and flavours. This summer, we are experimenting with many of the delicious flavors that Pataks Sauces can bring to a dish. My husband, especially, is always stirring a little of Patak's Sauces into this or that while he is cooking. Adding delicious sauces is how you take pasta from boring to bold...and this Curry Pasta Salad is full of punchy flavor and pairs perfectly with any meat or veggies on the grill.
Although you can use any pasta, a large pasta like this pasta holds sauce nicely and is great to bite into for a meal. I flavored this dish with Patak's Mild Curry Paste, but you could absolutely use Patak's Hot Curry Paste if you prefer an extra strong spicy taste.
Delicious Curry Pasta Salad
{serves 6-7 as a side dish}

6 cups cooked pasta
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup diced tomatoes {canned or fresh}
1/2 cup thinly sliced red pepper
1/2 cup sliced black olives
1/2 cup feta cheese
1 heaping tablespoon Patak's Mild Curry Paste
Salt & Pepper to taste
Garnish with finely chopped cilantro, if desired

To make:
1. In a frying pan, add a little olive oil and curry paste. Cook for a 2-3 minutes to allow spices to reach full flavor. Set aside and let cool.
2. Mix pasta with olive oil and curry paste until coated well.
3. Add tomatoes, red pepper, olives & feta cheese. Stir until mixed.
4. Add salt & pepper to taste. Serve or refrigerate until serving time.
Pasta salads are also a wonderful choice to take to a summer potluck, and they pack well in a cooler for travel too. We love pasta salads as a side dish for dinner, but they also are great for packed lunches too.
