Caprese Pasta

As a working mother with three active kids there are often times when we need to just throw something together for dinner.  This is a quick and simple meal for those nights when you don't have a lot of time to spend in the kitchen.  And the best part is you can put some aside for lunch the next day. 

While the pasta is cooking, you can prep the remaining ingredients, throw together a nice salad and there you have, it dinner is ready in no time.   This recipe is also great for picnics and potlucks.

What You’ll Need:
1 cup of grape tomatoes, halved
4 cloves garlic, chopped
½ cup olive oil
2-3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 cup chopped fresh basil
1 cup fresh mozzarella balls, halved
1 pound penne pasta, cooked
Salt and pepper to taste

Combine first five ingredients.  Add pasta and mozzarella, toss well.  Season with salt and pepper and serve.  Enjoy!
