Serves 4-6 You'll need: 16 oz dried past*, 1/2 tsp salt, 3 quarts of boiling water, 1/2 cup fresh basil leaves, 2 roma tomatoes, 1/2 cup mozzarella balls (or small squares sliced from a cheese block), 2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar, 2 Tbsp virgin olive oil, 1/8 tsp salt, 1/8 tsp pepper.
How to Prepare: Add pasta to the boiling water. Cook 10-12 min (or per package instructions). Strain pasta and place in large bowl. Add other ingredients and mix well. Serve right away! * I recommend using strozzapreti pasta. Strozzapreti means "priest choker" in Italian. One thought is that gluttonous priests loved the delicious pasta so much that they ate it too fast, so they actually choked themselves to death.
