Recipe

Pasta Caprese

Times

  • Prep Time : 15 minutes min
  • Cook Time : 6 minutes min
  • Ready Time : 21 min

Servings

4 s

Ingredients

  • 8 oz whole-wheat thin spaghetti
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 large tomatoes, rinsed, cored, and cubed
  • 1/4 C fresh basil leaves, rinsed, dried, and cut into ?-inch wide slivers
  • 3 oz part-skim mozzarella cheese (chunk package), cubed
  • 8 pitted black olives, cut into long slivers

Directions

Preparation

1 In a 4-quart saucepan, bring 3 quarts of water to a boil over high heat.
2 Add spaghetti, and cook according to package directions for the shortest recommended time, about 6 minutes. (Whole-wheat pasta tends to fall apart if overcooked.)
3  Reserve 1 cup of the cooking water and set aside. Drain spaghetti.
4 Add the spaghetti back into the pasta pot. Toss with olive oil and just enough reserved water to coat well.
5 Add the tomatoes, basil, mozzarella, and olives. Toss gently until well mixed.
6 Divide pasta evenly among four dinner plates (about 2¼ cups each). Serve immediately.
