Pasta salad is made in numerous ways but the easiest way is what I am gonna show. Stay Tuned !
Ingredients :
Pasta : 1 cup ( I have used Penne) 
Tomatoes : 2 medium 
Onions : 2 medium 
Olive Oil : 1 tsp
Black Pepper powder : 1/2 tsp
Salt : to taste
Lemon juice : 1/2 tsp
Herbs :
Oregano : 1 tsp
Mixed herbs : 1/2 tsp
Notes :
# Add more veggies of your choice. Brocolli, cucumber goes really well. 
# Add olives. Black or green 
Method :
1. Boiling the pasta : Take a wide pan. Bring plenty of water to boil, add salt (a pinch) and oil (1/2 tsp). Then slowly add the pasta and cook it till al dente (Pasta should be cooked until it's tender but slightly firm to the bite). Stir in between to prevent the pasta from sticking together.  After it is cooked, drain it in a colander and pour cold water on it. This is done to prevent it from getting cooked further. Mix another 1/2 tsp oil to it and keep it aside.
2.Wash and finely chop the tomatoes and onions. 
3.  In a large mixing bowl, take pasta. 
4. Add chopped tomatoes and onions. Add salt, pepper, olives, lemon juice and all the herbs.
5. Drizzle a little amount of olive oil. Toss it well.
6. Serve immediately !
