Caprese Pasta Salad
This is a very simple and delicious recipe, one of my favorites!
about 1 cup hemp seed basil pesto
organic, whole wheat rotini pasta (enough for two!)
1-2 tomatoes, chopped or 1 cup cherry tomatoes
'teese' mozzarella cheese for sprinkling
Once your pasta is fully cooked, add enough pesto to coat all of the pasta. If you would like to serve this dish cold, allow the pasta and sauce to cool before adding the tomato and vegan cheese. However, if you want this to be more of an ooey-gooey-cheesy goodness kind of dish, feel free to add the cheese and tomatoes while it is all still warm and mix it all together!
If you can find vegan mozzarella that is not shredded, feel free to use it! The big hunks of cheese add a nice contrast to the bite-sized chunks of tomato and pasta. Be creative and have fun with it. The best dishes come from a simple recipe that you make your own!
