Grilled vegetable pasta salad

Italian food is one of the few global cuisines that Indians are truly obsessed with. Italian food regularly features on the dining tables of most urban Indian households, and more often than not, we fall back on pastas, pizzas and many more to satisfy our cravings for a good meal.

Here is a winter recipe from Del Monte to make your menu more interesting.
