Fabulous Pasta Dish

I got this recipe or I guess I should say list of ingredients, because it doesn't matter how much of anything you put in it, from this girl in my ward who I visit teach. Her name is actually Ashley too haha. My visiting teaching companion and I went over to visit her (not visit teach but to hangout) and she made this dish and my companion made homemade foccacia bread, which was amazing! I didn't know if I could make it so I came last minute and nope I didn't bring anything, haha. To make this amazing pasta, that is light and delish you will need:
  • Pasta, preferably bow-tie pasta
  • Olive Oil
  • White Vinegar
  • Fresh Basil Leaves, from a plant, not from the spice container ones but it does work if you can't get any
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • Tomatoes
  • Fresh Mozerella Ball -Now BE careful! I made this last night and I accidentally bought a block of cheese....NOT THE SAME!
  • Salami -Be careful with this as well. I made this dinner for my family in CO and bought the right kind and I made this last night and got salami from Walmart and they barely had any, but I definately bought the wrong kind and it was really gross. Here is a picture (courtesy of the iPhone) of the last 2 previous and correct ingredients:Cook the pasta and while it is cooking cut up the mozzarella cheese, salami, and tomatoes in little pieces. Then when the pasta is done throw in the mozarella cheese, salami, tomatoes, fresh basil leaves, and pour in olive oil and white vinegar to the amount you want. I then add salt and pepper. If you don't have all of the ingredients you can always throw in spinach leaves or some garlic... This meal is so great, you'll have to try it! Here is a very bad picture of it in my parent's cooking pot...and we didn't have fresh basil leaves so it is tiny pieces of basil...but here is a picture of it!
And a good side would be freshly baked bread with a bowl of a mixture of Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar. Just like the restaurants! And you can even get a clove of garlic and crush it and then put it on a pan and cook it a little to put in the bottom of the Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar.
