Rigatoni with Tomatoes and Mozzarella

Tomatoes are at their peak in the summer -- toss them with mozzarella cheese, vinegar, olive oil, and parsley for a quick pasta sauce.

Cook's Notes

For cutting tomatoes, any sharp knife will do, but one with a serrated edge is best.

    Fresh summer pasta! Quick and easy to make! Made half of the recipe (2 servings) and there were still some for leftovers. Served with a crusty loaf of bread. Will definitely make again!

    Since basil is growing like crazy in my garden right now I use that instead of the parsley. Great recipe on a hot night.

    if you take the time to peel your tomatoes (by blanching them in boiling water fot seconds the peel comes right off), it wil be even better.

    This was a great recipe! Very easy and my husband loved it! I didn't have any rigatoni, so I used what I had....chicken and cheese raviolis. Highly recommend! My tomatoes were very juicy, I was afraid it would make the pasta mushy, so I drained off most of the juice before I added the olive oil mixture.

    I have made this over and over again. We absolutely love this and it is so easy to make. It is great in the summer when your garden is filled with red ripe juicy and very ready to eat tomatoes.
