Tasty Thursday: Caprese Pasta Salad

I’m always excited when I find a delicious recipe – especially when it’s incredibly easy to make! My latest find just might be THE easiest recipe I’ve ever made. And yes, it was delish!

What You’ll Need (Ingredients)

  • 1 container of grape tomatoes
  • 1/2 – 3/4 box of pasta
  • 1 container of pesto sauce
  • 1 package of mozzarella cheese

Cook the pasta on the stovetop until soft.

While the pasta’s cooking, cut the mozarella ball into smaller chunks (if you buy the pre-made mozarella balls, even better)! Optional: Cutting the tomatoes in half.

Wait a few minutes for the pasta to cool, then mix in the pesto sauce, grape tomatoes, and cheese.

Voila! You have a quick, easy, and delicious meal!
