Tomato, Cheese and Basil Pasta Salad

Have been experimenting with pasta salads lately and this one is simple and yummy :-)


  • 16 oz. package spiral pasta
  • Ad
  • 1 cup fresh basil leaves
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan, grated
  • 4 tsp. minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella, shredded


Cook pasta 'al dente' per package instructions. Rinse with cold water, drain well. While pasta is cooking, place all other ingredients in a large bowl and stir well. Add drained pasta, stir well again and refrigerate covered for at least two hours.
