  • Salt to taste
  • Olive oil
  • ½ lb. of ripe tomatoes, diced into small cubes
  • ¼ cup of Kalamata olives, pitted and diced
  • 1 lb. of mozzarella cheese, cut into small cubes (you can substitute this with vegan mozzarella or leave out completely)

Instructions:

Boil water on the stovetop with a splash of olive oil, add the pasta and boil for 15 min. or according to the box.

Drain the pasta and let it cool. If I have enough time, I even put it in the fridge for 30 min. after letting it cool.

Put the pasta in a bowl and add your tomatoes, olives, mozzarella and chopped sun-dried tomatoes.
