Pasta made with cherry tomatoes ,garden salad ,sour cream & cheese

Any food that starts with "P" is Honey P's favorite food ironically .Be it our South Indian specialty ,"Puttu","Parotta" or "Pathiri" or Northie like "Pakoda","Paneer curries" or be it international ones like "Pizza" or "PASTA"..........and so I try my hand on all those foods and among them the easiest breeziest one to cook is the "PASTA"......and that's the biggest reason why I love it the most :P....."P"iya ji bhi happy or "Pett" bhi happy :P ....aur kya chahiye !!...:)

Aren't they cute ?..I don't want to eat them but just keep looking at them in awe ...:P
 Pasta as we know is the famous Italian dish, quite versatile that so many dishes can be made within an hour ...that I've tried varities of dish and this dish is the simplest one to whip up like a snap....All you need is pasta of your choice and I've used fun filled "Harvest themed/shaped Pasta " ,garden salad (mix of veggies like lettuce,onion,carrots,spinach,basil) ,cherry tomatoes,sour cream for a hint of sourness and tossed in melted pepper jack cheese..........Did I say "Quick , healthy and yummy" ??:)
