CAESAR BASIL PASTA SALAD
Don’t you just love pasta salads? I don’t know what it is about them, but if I see one at a potluck, like this Caesar Basil Pasta Salad, I am on it faster than a fly on poop. Okay, uh, that wasn’t the best analogy. First rule of food blogging: Do not mention poop on a food blog.Caesar Basil Pasta Salad with cherry tomatoes and fresh mozzarella in a small bowl

WHAT OTHER INGREDIENTS CAN I ADD TO PASTA SALAD?
Some other ingredient suggestions would be diced cucumbers or sliced black olives! Marinated mozzarella is also a delicious option. Pasta just seems to call to that basic part of us that wants to be nourished. This recipe does not disappoint. It is creamy without being heavy and the touch of basil brightens all the flavors and makes it so darn good! It is certainly my go-to pasta salad for all occasions.
