DIRECTIONS

  • Boil the pasta according to directions on the package. I have never been a fan of al dente for whole wheat pasta because it has a little bit more of a bite to it than regular al dente pasta. But cook it to whatever bite you would prefer. Strain in colander and transfer to a bowl large enough to toss in olive oil.
  • Sauté the shallots, peppers and onions in olive oil until they are soft. Add the tomatoes, and sauté until they get soft. Add the garlic at the end so it does not burn. Transfer the mixture into the pasta and toss. Add diced mozzarella cheese, basil, lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste. Toss everything together and enjoy!
