    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.

    2. 2
      Add a little more olive oil, as desired, to prevent mixture from becoming too dry.

    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.

      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 more...er...involved 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.

      This is exactly what I'm talking about. Fresh veggies, warmed, on a plate of pasta. What could be missing? YOU. Great recipe, lovely product, you can't ask for me. Didn't change one thing. No need to. Thanks, Starry! ZWT 7
