Strawberry Basil Pasta

August 8, 2018

 

 

This is such a great light refreshing take on pasta for the summer! It’s great for a big group, as a main, or a side, and it’s delicious hot or cold. I made this for a group and topped with chicken. 

 

Total Thyme: 15 minutes

Serves: 4-6

 

Ingredients:

 

For the Pasta

Rotini or Penne Pasta : 8 oz (I use Gluten Free)

 

Crumbled Goat Cheese: 4 oz

 

Strawberries: 1 lb


Cucumber: 1 medium

 

Fresh Basil: 2 heaping handfuls

 

For the Dressing

Salt: a couple shakes

 

Pepper: ½ tsp

 

Olive Oil: 2/3 c


Balsamic Vinegar: ¼ c

 

Honey: 1 tsp

 

Directions:

 

Cook pasta according to package directions. Be sure to add several shakes of salt to the water to add flavor.

.
While pasta is cooking, wash and chop strawberries and cucumber into bite size pieces.

 

Chop basil loosely.

 

Make the dressing by whisking all ingredients well in a bowl.

 

When pasta is done cooking, strain and add to a large bowl.

 

Top the pasta with your produce, goat cheese and dressing, and toss together really well so everything is evenly distributed. Add more salt to taste.

 

Enjoy!
