  • Boil pasta in salted water according to package instructions. After the cooking time has elapsed, drain the pasta in a colander.

  • While the pasta is cooking, wash the cherry tomatoes and cut them into halves or quarters. Slice the mozzarella or leave it as whole if it is small.

  • Add homemade or store-bought pesto to the pasta and mix well. Then, add the tomatoes, mozzarella, salt if necessary, and stir again.


  • Fresh herbs like basil, parsley, or cilantro can add extra flavor and color to the salad. Chop them finely and sprinkle them on top just before serving.

  • This pasta salad recipe is versatile, so feel free to add or substitute ingredients to suit your tastes. Try adding vegetables like bell peppers, cucumber, or cherry tomatoes, or try different cheeses like feta or Parmesan.

Bon Appetit!
