My girls love Caprese salad so when I found this oldie but goodie in my recipe box, I whipped it up and they weren't disappointed.

You'll need 



  •  3/4 cup Olive Oil
  •  1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  •  1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
  •  1/4 tsp. salt
  •  1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes {use less if you don't like spicy}
  •  1/8 tsp. black pepper
  •  1 pound plum tomatoes, chopped
  •  1/2 pound fresh mozzarella, cut into 1/2 inch chunks
  •   1 pound pasta 



1. In a large bowl, combine olive oil, vinegar, garlic, basil, salt, red pepper and black pepper. 

2.  Add the tomatoes and cheese. Toss well to coat. Let marinate at room temperature for 30 minutes.

3.  Cook pasta according to instructions on box; drain. 

4.  Place the pasta in a large bowl. Add the tomato mixture and toss until well combined allowing cheese to melt slightly.

5. Serve warm.
