Olives, basil and two cheeses make this pasta a warm season favourite. Takes only a few minutes to put together, a quick summertime meal.
This recipe was bland as written but I made a few modifications based on reviews: I sauteed 3 garlic cloves, used drained diced tomatoes, added some oregano, basil and pepper. I let that simmer for a few minutes and then added spinach. I tossed the pasta with the tomatoes/spinach mixture and then I added fresh mozzarella. After I tasted it, it was still to bland for me so I tossed the batch with a balsamic vinagrette and it was very tasty. - 08 Sep 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This is good, but a little bland as is, although I don't like olives so I leave them out. We like it better as a cold pasta salad after the flavors meld more. As others, I added more garlic. I also added some red wine vinegar (approx. 2 T), more tomatoes, and some uncooked green onions, now it has become a favorite. - 27 May 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Very good but I served it cold. A salad to me is cold. It had a very good taste. - 16 Jul 2000 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
