This is a delicious Pasta salad! All the flavors of a Caprese salad with wonderful Pesto and pasta added. Great for a side dish or even the main course. You can even take this further and add some strips of hard salami or pepperoni.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook the rigatoni until just tender. Drain and rinse with cold water. Pat dry with paper towels and transfer to a large bowl.
  2. Add the tomatoes, mozzarella, pesto and Parmesan cheese to the pasta. Toss gently. Taste for seasoning, adding salt and pepper if necessary.
  3. If making ahead and storing in the refrigerator, remove the salad from the fridge at least 30 minutes before serving, if possible.
