    Starrynews's Note:

    A fun variation on the flavors of a Caprese salad! I recommend using good quality ingredients, as the recipe depends on only a handful of them to really shine. This was given to me by my aunt at my bridal shower.

    1. 1
      In a medium bowl, combine your choice of cubed cheese with the basil, tomatoes, garlic, olive oil, and black pepper, and stir well, using a fork.
    2. 2
      Add a little more olive oil, as desired, to prevent mixture from becoming too dry.
    3. 3
      Allow sauce to sit while you prepare linguine according to package directions.
    4. 4
      Immediately after draining linguine, toss with sauce and allow to sit for a moment while the cheese melts a bit from the heat of the pasta.

      Stir, serve, and enjoy!

      This is wonderful recipe! Very simple to make and great fresh flavors!. I used the buffalo mozzarella, and also added a sprinkle of fresh parmesan. I love garlic but the amount was a bit bitey for using raw, I would probable reduce it a little next time. I used cherry tomatoes, and put them in my little chopper food processor with a little bit of olive oil after chopping the garlic. A couple of pulses broke them down just enough with out disintegrating them. This was the perfect dish for a warm summer evening, thanks for sharing it.

      D-elicious! I used 95% fat free cream cheese. Excellent fresh flavors that you can't help but love and add to that you might just have the perfect pasta here. :D

      Just great! I really love the simplicity of this dish; with a sprinkle of kosher salt I was in 7th heaven. For those with a palate (aka carnivorous husbands) you could easily add chicken or prosciutto. I halved the recipe and DS, DD and I inhaled the whole thing and wished for more. My only complaint is that I used the pearl mozzarella and the heat from the pasta made the pieces stick together in clumps. Next time I will probably mix it all at room temp b/c I think it would still be delicious and I would get smaller pieces of cheese. Thanks, Starry! Made for Veg Swap 35.
