Easy, Yummy, Pasta Recipe!!
We have been eating a lot of meat in this house lately and I just needed a break!! But I didn't want the same boring old spaghetti with sauce that we usually have. I remember that the hubby loves this pasta dish and I decided to make it. It also worked out good because I was super tired last night and this is simply SO easy to make. There are endless opportunities to this recipe, but since this was for us and the kiddos I kept it simple.
1 box of spaghetti (or pasta of your choice, penne is great too)
1 package of grape tomatoes (I chop these up)
3/4 pound of salted fresh mozzarella cut into cubes
4 teaspoons of balsamic vinegar
1 1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup Olive Oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
In a large pot of salted boiling water cook spaghetti until just done.
In a large bowl combine the chopped tomatoes, mozz, balsamic and salt.
When pasta is done cooking, drain and add the ingredients from the bowl and toss.
Heat the Olive Oil in a pan over low heat and add the garlic, cook for about a minute, remove from heat and add to pasta and toss.
We topped ours with some grated Parmesan cheese and had garlic bread on the side.
Other good things you could add are:
