2 cloves garlic
1 package fusilli pasta
1 cup grape tomatoes
.5 cup basil
Grated Parmesan cheese
Nothing says summer more than fresh basil and tomatoes. I love caprese salad, so I decided to try making it into a pasta dish.
First, I cooked the pasta according to the directions on the package. While the pasta was cooking sauteed the garlic with the EVOO for one minute. Added the basil and tomatoes to the garlic to warm. Once the tomato mixture was heated through, I added it to the cooked pasta. Then tossed in cubed mozzarella and Parmesan to taste.
It was so good that I ate two huge bowls. It does not require a lot of ingredients, making it both tasty and inexpensive. Nice to have my appetite back!
