Caprese Style Linguine Pasta

Caprese Week Night Pasta Recipe

I do love my pasta dishes and sometimes nothing is better than a classic.. like real wheat pasta and lots of cheese! The ingredients in this dish are very simple, but go so well together. The mozzarella cheese and kalamata olives give it a salty taste and mixed with the acidity of the tomatoes - it is  just perfect. 

For this recipe, I used some Inspired Organics staples. Starting with the classic Linguine. It is made of 100% organic wheat and has no additives. It is also imported from Italy, which I love! All of their pastas are delicious and they have a ton of options - including whole wheat and fresh too! I also used the Inspired Organics Olive Oil and Inspired Organics Diced Tomatoes in this recipe. I use their olive oil almost daily and it is one of my favorites! This dish comes together in less than 30 minutes and is a great one to make for a big group or to enjoy for dinner and pack for lunches. It is easy to make a big batch and is a total crowd pleaser! I hope you enjoy!

 Sea Salt & Pepper to Taste

Directions:

1

Bring 4 cups of water to a boil with salt in a large pot. Add in pasta and cook according to instructions or to your desired texture.

3

Drain pasta and add back to a large pot. Set heat to low. Add in olive oil or butter (or both) to the pasta and mix well.
