1 (12 ounce) box
Barilla White Fiber Mini Shells
extra virgin olive oil
cherry tomatoes, halved
Salt to taste
Black pepper to taste
grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
Very nice and simple dish! Couldn't find the White Fiber Mini Shells, so I used regular Barilla Shells. Instead of regular olive oil I used a mixture of olive oil and garlic infused olive oil. Fabulous!
This wasn't filling to me at all. The flavor was a little mild. I think it would have been better had I chilled it as reviewers suggested.
Another reviewer suggested chilling this, so I did, and we liked it! I also used Extra Virgin Olive Oil with Chili to saute the veggies which gave it a little kick of heat (loved it). Served with a green tossed salad, warm baguette, and some slices of TJ’s Italian fresh mozzarella. It just doesn’t get much easier than this to put a nice meal on the table, and less time in the kitchen during a hot summer definitely is for me.
This is so easy! I would add some garlic and some pepper flakes next time. The fresh basil really makes this a perfect summer dish. Personally, I like the tomatoes just tossed with the hot pasta and not actually cooked. Don't forget to salt your pasta water, it really makes a difference in the end result of this recipe.
My little sister absolutely loved this dish, and I thought it was delicious as well as easy. To quote her "This tastes so fresh. It's the perfect summer pasta dish."
Here's another simple but tasty pasta dish that I made for a potluck. With the slight tang of the cherry tomatoes mixing with a subtle basil flavor and a creamy texture of melted parmesan and mozzarella cheeses, any pasta fan would gobble this up. Very nice!
Easy, quick and cheap! Loved it! I used local homegrown tomatoes chopped to bite size....added garlic as others recommended.....really light dish for summer! Great recipe, thank you Barilla!
DELICIOUS! I could not find the white fiber mini shells, so I used the white fiber mini rotini. The family really enjoyed this simple dish that can be served hot, cold or room temp. I will def be making this again~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)
