Pasta Salad


My mother-in-law started makes a delicious pasta salad during the summertime, and this is my version.  It’s super tasty, and it works well as a main dish or a side dish.


  • 1/8 to 1/4 c. olive oil
  • 8 to 10 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 c. cherry tomatoes, halved
  • salt
  • 1 lb. pasta
  • 1 lb. fresh mozzarella, cubed
  • 1/4 c. fresh basil, chiffonade
  • 1 c. quartered artichoke hearts


  1. Cook pasta according to package
  2. Put the tomatoes in a bowl and add some salt.
  3. Heat olive oil in a skillet; then add the garlic and cook for 3 minutes; then add the tomatoes and cook for another 5 minutes.
  4. Put pasta in a big bowl, add the tomatoes and garlic with the oil and toss to combine.  Then add the cheese, basil, and artichoke hearts and toss again.
