Caprese Pasta Salad by quornflour

With spring on the horizon, hopefully, I have been finding myself drawn to lighter colder tasting foods.

Tonight I threw together a very simple and yet delicious pasta salad based on a Caprese Salad.

  • ½ bag of Pasta Joy Fusilli – cooked
  • 2-3 Roma tomatoes – chopped
  • 1 ball of fresh mozzarella cheese – chopped
  • ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • ¼ cup fresh basil leaves – chopped
  • ¼ cup grated Romano cheese
  • 3-4 cloves finely chopped raw garlic
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • Salt to taste

Put it all together like this:

  1. cook your pasta per the directions on the bag, drain and toss with a little salt and a tablespoon of olive oil and let cool
  2. chop up your tomatoes and cheese
  3. add to a bowl with the rest of the ingredients
  4. add pasta
  5. toss and serve

It will leave your belly full and happy.
