Noteworthy changes in Italian cuisine happened with the discovery of the New World and the introduction of potatoes, tomatoes, bell peppers and maize, which are now an integral part of this cuisine.  Italian cuisine is known for its regional diversity each with a distinct taste.  This cuisine today is probably one of the most popular in the world.

Ingredients for Pasta And Vegetable Salad Recipe

  • Farfalle Pasta 1 cup

  • Brinjal thinly sliced 1 slice

  • Onion sliced 1 medium

  • Tomato peeled and cut into wedges 1 large

  • Red capsicum sliced 1 small

  • Garlic sliced 1 clove

  • Olive oil 1 1/2 tablespoons

  • Salt to taste

  • Black pepper powder 1/4 teaspoon

  • Lettuce leaves a few

  • Feta cheese crumbled 1/8

  • Fresh basil leaves torn 3-4

  • Olive oil 1 1/2 tablespoons

  • Orange juice 3 tablespoons

  • Paprika a pinch

  • Black peppercorns crushed 3-4

  • Salt to taste


Step 1

Preheat the oven to 220°C. Arrange the brinjal slices, onion, tomato, red capsicum and garlic in a single layer in an ovenproof dish. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper powder. Cook in the oven for thirty to forty minutes, or until the vegetables begin to turn brown.

Step 2

Remove from the oven and set aside to cool. Cook the farfalle in plenty of boiling salted water till al dente (cooked but still firm to the bite). Drain and place farfalle in a bowl. Mix together all the ingredients for the dressing in a small bowl. Pour the dressing over the farfalle while it is still hot.

Step 3

Toss well and set aside to cool. Line a serving platter with lettuce leaves. To serve, place the farfalle in the centre of the platter. Arrange the cold roasted vegetables in a pile in the centre. Sprinkle the crumbled Feta cheese and basil leaves over the salad. Serve immediately.
