Caprese Italian Pasta Salad
Caprese salad - the perfect combination of tangy tomatoes, creamy mozzarella cheese, and fresh basil. It sounds pretty damn good on its own.
Roast the tomatoes:
Arrange the grape tomatoes and whole garlic cloves on a baking sheet. Drizzle with a tablespoon of olive oil, and salt. Bake for 25 minutes, or until the skin has burst on the tomatoes.
Boil the pasta:
In liberally salted boiling water, boil the pasta. For pasta salad, I prefer a softer texture to the pasta.
Prepare the dressing:
In a mixing bowl, add the dressing ingredients. Mix well, and set aside. Once the garlic has roasted, remove from the skin and mash into the dressing.
Mix together the salad:
In a large serving bowl, mix together the pasta, roasted tomatoes, shallots and dressing. Toss well, and top with torn mozzarella and fresh basil.
