Pasta Salad with Corn and Peas

I don't know if you have the salad buffet restaurant called Souper Salad near you, but they have a tasty fettuccine and corn salad that I like and get cravings for. I found this recipe online and decided to make a batch for my lunch this week.


8 ounces fettuccine
1/2 cup frozen corn
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon fresh cracked black pepper
Salt to taste

The Process:
Cook fettuccine according to directions. Drain. Mix pasta and corn in a
bowl. Mix the mayonnaise, cheese, garlic powder and pepper. Combine the
pasta and mayonnaise mixture and mix well. Salt to taste. Refrigerate for a
couple of hours before serving.

Get some water boiling while you gather your other ingredients. I didn't have fettuccine but I did have some Soba noodles.

I didn't have much corn so I added...

Some Peas!

You need some good grated Parmesan cheese, not that strange powder in a can stuff.

Get your noodles in the boiling water.

These guys cook up fast so keep an eye on it.

I defrost frozen veggies by running them under warm water.

Add the veggies to the cooked noodles in a bowl.

Grab some garlic powder and sprinkle that on as well.

Add a nice handful of cheese

I love this gadget, if you do not have one of these they are so useful for measuring out mayo and peanut butter and other things that are a pain to scrape out of a measuring cup.

Add the mayo to the bowl and some fresh ground pepper. You also want to add some salt to season it.

This would be a great salad for the 4th of July. Whether you make this or not I sincerely hope you have a wonderful weekend with your friends and family!


  1. I used to have one of those wonderful measuring cups but you guessed it. Peanut chewed it up.

  2. i have that measuring cup too! LOVE IT.

    a tip- i cook frozen veggies in the last few minutes with the pasta! they come out perfect everytime!

  3. This looks great! I already have my menu planned for the 4th, but I'm definitely going to try this later.
