♥ Caprese Pasta Salad (Orecchiette Pasta with Sun Dried Tomatoes and Mozzarella)

Yesterday while shopping at a local grocery store (Wegmans), I watched a simple demonstration on how to prepare this pasta dish. So I came home and made it myself. It's made up of only three ingredients but out of this world good! Sort of ...like a Caprese Salad but even more delicious. You've gotta try this one!

Caprese Pasta Salad (Orecchiette Pasta with Sun Dried Tomatoes and Mozzarella)

1 bag orecchiette pasta (also called little ears)
1 container roasted sun dried tomatoes in olive oil
1 container of FRESH pea-size mozzarella balls
Optional: parsley or chopped basil for garnish

Cook pasta in large pot of boiling salted water until tender but still firm to bite, stirring occasionally

Cook pasta until tender. When pasta is done drain well and set aside to cool. Once the pasta is cool, stir in the roasted sun dried tomatoes along with all the oil that is in the container they come in and toss. Add mozzarella balls and toss again. Enjoy!

  1. This is Great! Course I haven't tried a recipe you put up yet that wasn't, but this is so easy I added a sprinkle of toasted pine nuts for the top and a wonderful quick meal. Orecchiette pasta has always been a favorite of mine glad to find a recipe that calls for it. Thank you for all your had work and your wonderful site!
