Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

This recipe is for a Grilled Vegetable Pasta Salad. It is perfect for lunch or as a snack, and is so easy to prepare. Make a batch of this, and keep it in the fridge for a day or two and the flavours will intensify even more, making it even more tasty. You can use any vegetables you like, and make this salad your own.

Place onto a piece of foil, and drizzle with olive oil.

Wrap tightly in the foil, and bake in the oven for 45 minutes.

Cool the garlic completely.

Cook 2 cups pasta in boiling salted water.

Heat a large grill pan, and lightly coat 2 sliced bell peppers with olive oil and grill for 5 minutes on each side.

Set the grilled bell peppers aside.

Slice 2 courgettes in half, lightly coat in oil and grill for 5 minutes.

Set the grilled courgettes aside.

Grill a handful mushrooms, 1 sweet red pepper and a handful cherry tomatoes, and set aside.

To make the dressing, place the roasted garlic cloves (without the skin) into a large bowl.
