Caprese Spinach Pasta salad

Glenda Moore


I ate this for a late afternoon Lunch and thought it was very good.
I love any kind of Caprese Salad.
Later on when my husband got home and was very hungry this is what I fed him until dinner was done.
My Husband loved this and I did not expect him to like it.
This was made in early September while there were a few tomatoes on the vine & fresh basil in the garden, I plant different types of basil every year and love it even the neighbors come to smell my basil walking away with it stuck in their noses. one of these days I will put up a pic of my garden that people tell me is just sweet and lovely. To me it is just my Garden.
