20 Min


15 Min


Stove Top


bow tie pasta – 1 box
sundried tomatoes (packed in oil with herbs) – 1 jar
fresh basil - no specific amount (i just add as much as i want)
mozzarella cheese – small block – not grated
parmesan cheese – 1/2 bag of grated cheese
pitted kalamata olives – 1/2 jar drained (less if you prefer)
grape tomatoes – 1 container
chopped garlic – i usually use the jar of garlic & add about a tablespoon

Directions Step-By-Step

Cook the pasta per the instructions on the box
After draining the pasta I usually leave it in the colander & pour most of the oil from the sundried tomatoes on it to keep it from sticking together

In no particular order:
Chop the basil
Cube mozzarella
Chop the olives
Quarter the tomatoes
Add the parmesan cheese
Add the sundried tomatoes
Add chopped garlic
Salt & Pepper
After the pasta has cooled, add it to the rest of the ingredients & mix
