I am so getting the itch to go back to Italy. It seems all I want to do is read up on the places I didn’t visit last time and delve into more Mediterranean cookbooks in addition to my photos off the coast of the Mediterranean.
This is a salad I whipped together yesterday to bring me back there. It’s a Caprese Pasta Salad. It’s light, delicious and healthy. All you have to do is select your favorite pasta, throw in some sliced grape tomatoes, fresh mozzerella cheese and some homemade pesto.
This is such a wonderful dish that can be served as a side dish or entree. Add in some grilled chicken or shrimp if you like to make it a heartier entree. Once you take a bite it’s hard to put it down.
Make up a batch of crostini to go with it and you’re all set. Yum!
Since yesterday the batch I made is almost gone. Fortunately I still have plenty of pesto so I may have to run out and get more pasta and tomatoes and whip up another batch to go with dinner.
I’ll be adding this to my menu of classes along with a wonderful seafood recipe and light mediterranean dessert.
