  • Non-Stick Pan (US)


  • 2 Instant Pasta Pack 2cup pasta
  • 2 Pasta tastemaker
  • apple Apple
  • ½ cup grapes
  • ½ cup pineapple
  • ¼ teaspoon Black pepper
  • 2 tablespoon mint leaves chopped


Cooking Pasta

  • I am using this sunfeast yippee cheese treat to make this pasta dish. This comes with this cheese tastemaker which I am going to keep aside for now.
  • To make this first Heat one and quarter cup of water.
  • Next add in the pasta in hot water as well as the tastemaker. Mix everything together
  • Now you need to cook both of these for 4-5 minutes till pasta and the sauce is of this consistency.
  • You can eat this delicious pasta bowl as is.But I am going to make a fruity pasta salad with this.

Making Macaroni Salad

  • For making pasta salad first allow this pasta to cool down and then transfer it in a salad bowl.
  • Now add fruits of your choice I am adding chopped apples, pineapples, sliced grapes.
  • Toss them together gently and finally and sprinkle chopped herbs like mint basil or coriander whichever is available.
  • Finish with a generous sprinkle of black pepper and enjoy this cheesy fruity pasta salad or macaroni salad.
