Our Now-Famous Pasta

This is my favorite summer dish - and one of our most requested recipes

The Light's Pasta Mediterranean

Cook one box of Farfalle pasta, as directed, then drain before tossing in extra-virgin olive oil. 
Put in the refrigerator to chill.

Prepare the following:
2 - 3 Tablespoons chopped basil
1/4 cup shallots, finely diced
1 container of cherry tomatoes, halved
1 ball of Mozzarella cheese, cubed
3 cloves of garlic, minced

Add ingredients to pasta, toss, then chill for about two hours.

Plating: When ready to serve put individual portions on plates. Grind a little pepper and shave Parmesan cheese over each. Finish with a decorative drizzle of balsamic glaze.

NOTE: For leftovers, I usually toss in a little extra olive oil before finishing the plating.

Please comment below if you give it a try - I'd love to hear from you!
