Ingredients

  • 1 lb wagon wheel pasta
  • 1 1/2 pints grape tomatoes
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 bunch fresh basil, torn
  • 1/2 lb fresh mozzarella cheese, diced
  • extra-virgin olive oil

Preparation

Step 1

In a pot of boiling water, add wagon wheels and cook for 7-8 minutes. Drain, reserving a little pasta water to add to tomatoes.

Step 2

Heat a high-sided skillet over medium-high heat; add olive oil, let heat. Add grape tomatoes, cover the skillet and shake to allow the tomatoes to burst, about 4-5 minutes. Stir in garlic and shake pan again to mix, then add reserved pasta water.

Step 3

Dice cheese into chunks. Place the drained pasta directly in the skillet. Add in the basil (that's been sliced into ribbons) and diced fresh mozzarella. Drizzle with olive oil and garnish with more basil.

Sounds good but

Sounds good but a bit more flavor? Balsamic vinegar or infused olive oil even?
