Grilled Pasta Salad

This time of year I know a lot of people will have their grills going with the usual hot dogs,burgers,ribs and so on,so I decided to share a recipe for a side dish you make on the grill along with your favorite meats and surprise your friends and family.The dish is a "grilled" tri-color pasta salad,yes I said grilled its me remember?just follow the easy steps trust me.
Ingredients : 1 box tri-color rotini pasta any brand but I use Barilla
1 bag shredded cheese "your choice"
1 large onion
1 bell pepper
1 red pepper 
3 corn on the cobbs with husk still on
Soak the corn in water for at least 30 minutes then place on the grill cause they take longer to cook remember to leave husk on.When they're almost done brush your peppers and half of the onion with olive oil and place on grill.When your vegetables are done start the pasta.Boil 4-6 quarts of water with salt add pasta,stir occasionally should cook within 7-8 minutes.As pasta is cooking chop up your vegetables and take a knife and "peel" the ears of corn off the cobbs.
When the pasta is cooked drain it and place in a bowl mix in all the vegetables and shredded cheese and add a little olive oil then serve as side dish.
Leave me a comment if you try it and let me know what you and your family and friends thought.Until next time stay geeky and hungry my friends!
