For Garlic Lovers

A few bloggers like to post up some of their favorite and personal invention of recipes. This is my very own original receipe. Be Warned. It is not for the faint hearted and there are some of you who may very well email me to ask is there traces of cocaine in this receipe. It is also for those of you who love garlic. So unless you dont want to have a game of tonsil tennis with someone. Have yourself a bowl of this tastiness.

Judes Cold Garlic Pasta Salad
3-4 cups of pasta shells
5-6 cloves of Garlic
1 small Cucumber
1 tin of red kidney beans
bunch of Spring onions and one red onion
10 small new potatoes or 3 large baked potatoes with skin still on
1 red pepper
4 seeded tomatoes
1 cup of cooked petis pois
1 Large carrot
3 dessert spoons of Mayo or Miracle whip
salt & pepper
2 teaspoons of blue poppy seeds
chop cucumber into small cubes with skin remaining
drain and wash the tin of kidney beans
chop onion and spring onions finely
remove pith & stalk from red pepper and cut into small squares
grate the carrot
with a garlic press , mince the garlic of 5-6 gloves - depending on taste, for a mellow smokey taste bake the clove bulbs for about 10 minutes in a hot oven
chop your large tomatoes removing the seeds
chop your potatoes into small bite size chunks

now add in pepper, cucumber,tomatoe, potatoe, onions, kidney beans and carrot to a large serving dish, mix in the minced garlic and 3-4 dollops of mayo/miracle whip
cook the pasta shells until soft and rinse in cold water immediately.
Drain the pasta and add to vegetable mix. Add seasoning of salt and pepper with poppy seeds.

This is delicious on slivers of toasted bread or with fish, Great for barbeques or with green salad and crusty french stick.

Thats sounds like a great twist on pasta salad.

I'm going to make that for our next BBQ.

I have to eat this when suolas is away because he cant stand garlic. Sad but true.
2 bulbs of garlic?? That would be repeating on me until jaysus knows when.
Thought you might try it out since its a veggie thing..
