Recipe Ingredients for Fusilli Caprese

1 pound fusilli pasta
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 cups cherry tomatoes, quartered
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup basil
8 ounces fresh mozzarella, diced (about 1 1/4 cups)

Recipe Directions for Fusilli Caprese

  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat.

  2. Add the pasta and cook until tender but still firm to the bite, stirring occasionally, about 8 to 10 minutes.

  3. Drain pasta into a large bowl and reserve 1/2 cup of the cooking liquid.

  4. In a medium skillet heat the olive oil over medium heat.

  5. Add the garlic and saute until fragrant, about 2 minutes.

  8. Transfer the tomato sauce to the bowl with the pasta. Toss to combine.

  9. Add the basil leaves and mozzarella.
