Caprese Pasta Salad

Ok so I am on a bit of a caprese salad kick, I already posted a plain caprese salad recipe, here’s one with pasta in it. Perfect for a potluck or feeding a crowd. I made this for a large dinner party with many children attending. The kids will eat the pasta and the occasional bocconcini and very rarely a tomato. So I consider this kid friendly!

  • 1lb pasta (I used orrechietti)
  • 2 tubs of bocconcini
  • 2 pints cherry tomatoes cut in half
  • 1/2 cup basil chopped
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  1. cook the pasta as directed, rinse and cool pasta, add the rest of the ingredients and serve. I eyeballed this recipe, so you may want to adjust the dressing to your taste. Season generously with salt and pepper.
