summer pasta.

With the new kitchen I’m really enjoying to cook at home a lot more. Before our move we were eating at restaurants almost every night and I have to say, I’ve actually missed cooking!! This past Saturday Mike was craving my mom’s summertime pasta and luckily it is super easy to make. It doesn’t require a ton of cooking (other than boiling the pasta) and literally only takes 10 minutes to whip up.

You’ll need pasta of your choice (spagetti don’t work too well tho …), mozarella cheese, red onion, a few tomatos, salt and pepper. My mom usually adds fresh basil as well but I didn’t have any at home so dried oregano had to do.

Simply cook the pasta and in the mean time dice the tomatos, onions and mozarella. Once the pasta is done, mix in the mozarella until it starts melting from the heat of the pasta. Then add the tomatos, onions and season with salt and pepper. Top off with some fresh basil (or in my case dried oregano). Voilà!!

{serve it like this if you love parmesan as much as I do}

    great recipe I will have to try this. I have really been in to summer salads yesterday. Today I’m making creamy avocado pasta. I’m from Cali so avocados rule my culinary world. Hope you are having a great day!

    Vicky, when you make this, how do you make sure that the shredded Mozarella doesn’t clump together? When I tried it the cheese re-clumped into one big ball ;p
    It was still yummy though!!
