Caprese Pasta Salad

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 lb dried pasta (farfalle, orzo or other small pasta)
  • 8 oz mozzarella pearls sliced in half
  • 2 cups grape or cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil leaves thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup Queen of Hearts Sassy Italian Superfood Dressing

Directions:

  • Cook pasta according to package directions. When done, rinse and drain in cold water.
  • While pasta is cooking, prepare tomatoes, mozzarella pearls, and basil. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl add cooked pasta, mozzarella pearls, tomatoes and basil. Drizzle with Queen of Hearts Sassy Italian and toss.
  • Taste, and add salt and pepper as needed.

Pro tip: Toss with about 3/4 of the dressing, then cover and chill the night before or a few hours. Before serving, let salad sit out on the counter 15 minutes to come up to room temp. Toss with remaining dressing & serve!
