|Here’s a little appetizer I put together in minutes. I fortunately have access to good quality fresh pasta sheets so it made the process go really fast!|
|I pre-roasted grape tomatoes ahead of time, bought some fresh mozzarella balls and basil for my ingredients.|
|Look how simple this is! Wet your cut pasta around the edges then place a basil leaf, a roasted tomato, (make sure it’s not too juicy) and top it off with a mozzarella ball.|
|Crimp them together with a fork close to the mozzarella ball so it doesn’t move around.|
|Boil until tender and then drain on a kitchen cloth, you don’t want them to be wet!|
|For a very quick sauce you can take some good store bought pesto like I did, add in a few of those extra roasted tomatoes you have, and a little lemon zest for freshness, mix together and spoon it all over!
And if that’s not enough, drizzle your plates beforehand with the best balsamic glaze you can find, here’s mine. Oh My!
