Rita goes to Italy! Ciao Bella


I love pasta! And an easy recipe for it. What’s not to love: pasta, scallions, garlic, tomatoes, cheeses and basil! This recipe is similar to one I enjoyed in Rome last year.

PASTA ALA ROMA

8 oz pasta, cooked

Pulse in food processor until tomatoes are just coarsely chopped:

4 scallions, chopped

12 oz cherry tomatoes, halved

3 tablespoons Parmesan

1 good tablespoon minced garlic

Handful fresh basil leaves

1/4 cup olive oil or bit more

For mixing in with cooked pasta:

4 oz. Mozzarella

Salt and pepper

For garnish:

More Parmesan

Toss pasta with tomato mixture. Mix in Mozzarella and seasonings. Sprinkle with Parmesan and serve.
