Pasta caprese

I know, I know, Mondays are never easy…but pasta caprese surely is!

It is easy, quick, tasty, fresh, it has everything!

And it is a great lunch idea!

Ingredients fpr 2 people:

  • Plum tomatoes, 10-15
  • Garlic, 1 clove
  • Olive oil
  • Mozzarella (I prefer bufala), 1 diced
  • Basil leaves
  • Salt
  • Pasta (I prefer fusilli) 160g


  1. Wash the tomatoes and cut the little black spot on top
  2. Cut the garlic very finely
  3. Put the oil in a pan and when it is warm add the garlic
  4. Don’t let the garlic become golden, leave it just for a few minutes
  5. Cut the tomatoes in half and put them in the pan
  6. Leave them just for a few minutes, don’t make them become too wrinkly
  7. Add salt
  8. Cook the pasta
  9. While the pasta is cooking, cut the mozzarella in squares
  10. When the pasta is cooked, put the pasta in the pan with the tomatoes, and stir for a few minutes
  11. Put the pasta in the plate
  12. Add the mozzarella, it doesn’t have to melt
  13. If you want, you can cut the basil very finely, otherwise you can just put the leaves on top of the pasta
