Caprese Pasta

The combination of a sunny Indian summer evening and some luscious tomatoes from Belle's garden meant one thing for dinner: caprese pasta. This dish reminds me of so many summer dinners at my apartment in Trastevere. I love that the only thing you have to cook is the pasta.

While the pasta boiled, I sliced a ball of fresh mozzarella and fresh tomatoes. Then when the pasta was done - al dente!- I tossed it with the cheese, tomatoes, and a handful of arugula leaves. A splash of olive oil to make everything glossy; fresh ground pepper and some grey sea salt for some more flavor. Che squisito! And so, so fast.
