Easy Summer Caprese Pasta

While Chef Titina takes a summer break from her popular Capri Flavors Cooking Classes--try this easy pasta variation of her signature Caprese Salad.

  • Cube fresh mozzarella cheese. (Try the buffalo mozzarella that's shipped frozen to the Capri Flavors retail store).  Put cubed cheese in a large bowl.

  • Boil water and cook your favorite pasta. Drain. Then pour warm pasta over the cheese and toss.

  • Next add 1 or 2 chopped fresh tomatoes, minced garlic, and capers in salt (rinsed and drained),

  • Finish the dish with lots of Titina's Italian Olive Oil and chopped fresh basil. Serve at room temperature with good bread to soak up the juice.

Titina's cooking classes will resume in late summer.  Until then, this is a great time to practice one of the most important lessons from her Italian kitchen and eat fresh, starting with the easy recipe.
