Zesty Mozza Pasta

  • 2 1/2 whole wheat rotini (or whatever you like)
  • 1 lb plum tomatoes
  • 10 oz mozzarella drained (buy pre-made spheres to make it easier)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • zest and juice of one lemon
  • 12 fresh basil leaves torn
  • salt and pepper
Follow package instructions to cook pasta. Meanwhile combine olive oil, balsamic vinegar, basil, lemon zest and juice. Salt and pepper to taste. Then add the mozzarella and set aside until pasta is cooked.

When ready to serve, toss pasta with sauce. Toast some crusty bread to sop up the juices. It's delicious!
