Linguine alla Caprese


This fresh tomato sauce can be made ahead and left at room temperature. Just before serving, cook the pasta and toss it with the sauce. It's a great warm-weather dish.

4 large ripe tomatoes, cored and seeded, cut into ½-inch dice
½ cup fresh basil leaves, slivered
¼ cup fresh mint leaves, coarsely chopped
3 scallions, thinly sliced
7 ounces ripe brie (rind removed) or fresh mozzarella, cut in small cubes
3 cloves garlic, finely minced or pressed
1/3 cup olive oil
freshly ground black pepper, to taste
salt, to taste
12 ounces linguine or spaghettini

1. Combine everything except pasta in a large serving bowl.

2. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook until al dente, about 11 minutes for linguini.

3. Drain well, add the pasta to the tomato sauce and toss well; season with salt.


Serves 6.

thank you fryboy, as for this thread, im aiming this thread to be a simple format using multiple noodles for different styles/sauces/toppings, rather a recipe list, but keep them coming

preferring lists like my first post, so i can get great ideas
