Cook pasta according to packet instructions. Drain and rinse under cold water. Cool.
Place the carrots in an even layer in the bottom of a large glass bowl, preferably one that is roughly the same diameter from top to bottom. Cover carrots with a layer of lettuce. Combine the cucumber, peas and sweetcorn and spread in a layer over the lettuce. Cover with cold pasta.
In a small bowl stir together the mayonnaise, brown sugar, curry powder and garlic. Spread this carefully over the pasta. Top with grated cheese and then cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving.
Can't wait to make this again, so yummy. I was reluctant to put the peas and corn in but glad I did. - 08 Nov 2010
This is really yummy!!! I made it yesterday for a family celebration. Everyone loved it. There were a few people there who didn't even know there was curry in it - good thing because they don't like curry - but when i told them there was curry in they were amazed at how good it was. I would definately make it again. - 29 Sep 2008
I had this for a lunch at my house with lots of women and they all liked it and commented on how good the dressing was. I will make this one again. It was like a meal with the pasta and all the veggies. Great and filling! - 29 Sep 2008
