- Cube fresh mozzarella cheese and put in a large bowl.
- Boil water and cook your favorite pasta. Drain. Then pour warm pasta over the cheese and toss.
- Next add 1 or 2 chopped fresh tomatoes and their juices, minced garlic, and capers in salt (rinsed and drained).
- Finish the dish with lots of good olive oil and chopped fresh basil. Serve at room temperature with bread to soak up the juice.
Note: . I’m lucky enough to do some part-time writing for Capri Flavors, the local Italian food importer. They have high-quality olive oil, capers in salt, and real buffalo mozzarella cheese that’s shipped from Italy frozen ( so even retired people lik e me can afford it).
I use all three of those favorite items in this dish. And yes, I would serve this easy, meat less pasta to guests. Is there anything better that fresh home-grown tomatoes? What a delicacy!
