We needed a quick dinner last Sunday because we'd spent the weekend down in Baltimore visiting one of my friends from college. I had a ton of tomatoes from my garden that needed to be used up, plus plenty of basil, so I thought a caprese pasta sounded perfect.
While the water boiled and the pasta cooked I chopped the tomatoes, diced a ball of fresh mozzarella and shredded some basil. I tossed everything together with salt, pepper and a little oil. SP thought this was the essence of summer in a bowl.
