Pasta Caprese

Pasta Caprese
*no recipe amounts, just use what you’ve got!
And if you haven’t any garlic-flavored oil, just mince or grate a clove of garlic and add it to the pasta.

Pasta, your choice of shape
Tomatoes, assorted colors, diced, some seeds removed
Fresh Mozzarella, diced
Fresh Basil, snipped into thin ribbons (scissors work well)
Garlic oil, salt and pepper to taste
Cook pasta to al dente and drain well.  Place pasta in serving bowl and drizzle with an abundance of garlic-flavored oil.  Top with diced tomatoes, mozzarella and basil.  Season with salt and pepper and toss well to distribute ingredients.  Serve warm or at room temperature.  The cheese is NOT supposed to melt.
