boooy have i been slacking on the sunday recipe portion of this blog! my apologies. on sunday, after a long morning of flea marketing i ate the most deliciously simple cold pasta dish. the recipe goes a little something like this...
|8 oz uncooked fusilli, or other spiral pasta|
|1 tbsp balsamic vinegar, or more to taste|
|2 tsp olive oil|
|1/2 tsp dried oregano|
|1 cup(s) cherry tomato(es), or grape tomatoes, halved|
|1/2 cup(s) basil, fresh, chopped|
|2 oz whole milk low-moisture mozzarella cheese, smoked, diced (1/2 cup)|
|1/8 tsp table salt, or to taste|
|1/8 tsp black pepper, or to taste|
- cook pasta according to package directions; drain and transfer to a large bowl. add vinegar, oil and oregano; toss to coat.
- fold in tomatoes, basil and mozzarella; season to taste with salt and pepper. serve warm or chilled. yields about 1 cup per serving.
