Pasta salad with tomatoes and mozzarella
This is another very simple but very tasty recipe, given to me by my friend Antonis. You can serve this as a main course or a side if you want.
Ingredients (feeds 3-4)
500gr pasta, usually penne or farfalle. I also like to use, larger, tubular pasta, like rigatoni.
2 pieces of mozzarella (they usually come in 150gr pieces), drained, cut into pieces.
Fresh basil leaves
Fresh ripe tomatoes (the redder the better), chopped (keep the juices)
Salt & pepper
Cook the pasta for the time suggested on the package. Drain it and put into a large bowl. Mix in the chopped tomatoes with their juice. Add the basil leaves and mozzarella and sprinkle with olive oil and season. Enjoy!
