Yummy Pasta Salad

My brother taught me to make this when he moved home from Italy. But it's a really great and light pasta salad. First, you can use penne or rigatoni and boil it. Don't over cook it. Over cooked pasta is gross. then put it in a bowl and lightly coat it with olive oil, for flavor and so they don't stick together. So you take some of these:

And you dice them up. Put them in with teh pasta

You drain a can of these and put them in the pasta as well

You soak a pound of moz cheese, cubed, in a bowl of water for an hour or two, throw that in

Then add basil, salt, and pepper to taste. I want to try this with chopped fresh basil some day. BUt in the meantime, this light salad is WONDERFUL!
