Caprese Pasta Salad

Caprese Pasta Salad

By Melanie Richardson

This is one of my favs!

It's a ridiculously delicious take on a caprese salad and requires barely any cooking. I added left over chicken we had, but you can add any sort of other meat or just go vego.

The macros don’t include the chicken I added, so they’ll be a bit higher if you add meat. Good for protein though.

  • 1x tub cherry bocconcini, halved
  • 500g pack of large spiral pasta
  • Fresh basil, roughly chopped (use as much as desired)

  • 45g pine nuts, toasted
  • Choice of meat (optional)
