We had our first (of many) pool parties at my parent's house this past weekend.
I offered to bring pasta salad as my contribution. I have made this before, but didn't remember it being this good!
It's a different twist than your typical pasta salad, but so fresh (and easy)!
1 package of 9 oz Whole Wheat Tortellini
1 container of Mozzarella Cheese Balls
Handful of Fresh Basil
1 package of Cherry Tomatoes
1/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/4 cup White Vinegar
1 Tablespoon of Mrs. Dash Italian Seasoning
1/2 Tablespoon of Garlic Powder
1/4 tsp of salt
Make dressing up and allow to sit for at least an hour.
Cook pasta according to package (7-10 minutes). Slice mozzarella balls in fourths.
Cut tomatoes into fourths.
Slice fresh basil.
Toss the pasta with the dressing.
Drizzle the balsamic glaze over the bowl of pasta.
