If anything can brighten up a long list of to-dos, it’s going to be a new strawberry recipe! And this one is so quick, light, & refreshing! The colors alone make me very happy!

Strawberry Caprese Pasta

I’ve noticed recently that I’ve made a lot of pasta salad recipes for you all. I’m not really sure where this habit came from, but it seems I am addicted to pasta salad!

In March, I shared this Quick Homemade Gnocchi Caprese Salad.

In April, I shared this Pesto Tortellini Salad.

And today I will be sharing with you a new recipe for Strawberry Caprese Pasta Salad!

And while I don’t have any more pasta salad recipes planned in the near future, I do have one more new strawberry recipe, my Strawberry Goat Cheese Crostini.

Ingredients
  • 2 Cups Uncooked Pasta
  • 1 & ½ Cups Sliced Strawberries
  • Mini Mozzarella (8 oz)
  • Fresh Basil (Chiffonade) (.75 oz)
  • Balsamic*
Instructions
  1. First, cook the pasta according to their instructions. Once al dente, drain the pasta, run it under cold water (to stop the cooking process), & place the drained pasta in a serving bowl.
  2. Next, stir in the sliced strawberries & mini mozzarella.
  3. Let the Strawberry Caprese Pasta Salad chill for 1-2 hours then mix in the fresh basil, top with balsamic, & enjoy!
Notes
* If you prefer thickened balsamic (as pictured) simply pour the balsamic in a pan & bring it to a simmer at medium heat, then reduce the heat to low & let it simmer for 10-15 minutes until thickened. I reduce between ¼ & ⅓ cup, but it depends on how much balsamic reduction you desire.
