    Fresh Mozzerella Penne Pasta

    One of my favorite recipes...and great this time of year when you can get fresh tomatoes...rest of year I use cherry tomatoes...or the grape tomatoes. It is best with the fresh basil.

    Fresh Mozzerella Penne Pasta

    8 oz. fresh mozzerella cheese, cut into small cubes
    3 medium tomatoes diced(I used cherry tomatoes cut in quarters)
    2 avocados, peeled, pitted and diced
    3 cloves garlic, minced
    1/2 cup chopped red onion
    1/2 cup fresh basil, coarsely chopped, or 2 t. dried basil
    1/2 cup olive oil(I used less)
    1 Tbls fresh squeezed lemon juice
    2 tsp. coarse salt(or 1 t. regular salt)
    pepper to taste
    1 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes(optional)
    1-16oz. package penne pasta
    freshly grated parmesan cheese

    In a large bowl combine all ingredients except penne pasta. Let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes.
    In the meantime, cook penne pasta according to package instructions. Drain and return to pan.
    Add tomato mixture and toss to coat throughly. Transfer onto individual serving plates and garnish with parmesan cheese.

    Serves 4.

    This also tasted good cold so would make a good pasta salad. It works to reheat it (about 1 minute in microwave)but the mozzerella cheese does melt.

    Thanks for the recipe. A man from work brought this in one day. He said his sister-in-law made it and that it was just the ingredients you saw and italian dressing. I tried every italian dressing I could find and it never tasted right. This sounds like it is probably it. Been wanting a pasta salad, will have to make this.

    This is the day that the Lord hath made, we will rejoice and be glad in it.
