Making a salad with pasta and ham:

Step 1: cook pasta.

Boil a sufficient amount of water in the pan, do not forget to salt it a little as well. Sprinkle pasta and cook over medium heat for 5-10 minutes, depending on what cooking time is indicated on their label.
Discard the finished pasta in a colander, let the excess water drain. And so that they do not stick together, add a little butter to them while they are still hot and mix. Wait until the prepared ingredient has cooled to room temperature.

Step 2: prepare the ham.

Clean the ham from the top film. Cut this ingredient into strips or small cubes, depending on your desire.

Step 3: prepare the vegetables.

Rinse tomatoes and peppers under a stream of warm running water. Dry.
Tear off the ponytails from a tomato and cut out the remaining seal, then chop the vegetable by cutting it into cubes.
Peppers are divided into halves, cut out each core with seeds. Rinse again, then cut into cubes, as well as tomatoes.

Step 4: prepare the cheese.

Cut off the crust of the cheese, if any, and simply grate the rest on a medium or fine grater.

Step 5: prepare the corn.

Opening a can of corn, drain the excess liquid.

Step 6: mix the ingredients.

In the end, be sure to make sure that your salad does not need to be additionally salt or pepper, and then proceed to serving it.

Recipe Tips:

- Some recommend refueling this salad not with mayonnaise, but with olive oil.

- Often I meet recipes in which, among other things, canned green peas and pickles are added.

- Conventional pasta can be replaced with instant noodles.
