Ammmmaaaaazing! This really was an excellent dish, and on the table in no time flat. I actually processed the tomatoes and onion and made more of a sauce out of them (DH doesn't like chunks of tomatoes) - super delicious and makes GREAT leftovers! Thanks Mary :D

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large bowl, gently combine the tomatoes, onion, oil, bocconcini, salt, and pepper. Set aside and let marinate at room temperature for at least 10 minutes. Meanwhile, cook the pasta according to the package directions. Add the drained pasta and basil to the marinated tomatoes and toss to combine. Divide among individual bowls.
  2. Tip.
  3. The longer the tomato mixture marinates, the more flavorful it becomes. Keep it in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Spoon it over chicken or warm bread.
