Pesto Chickpea Pasta (Caprese Style) ingredients

Step 1

To a boiling pot add a tbsp of salt and add the pasta for 7-8 minutes. Slice your cherry tomatoes in half. Chop the basil, and mozzarella into small pieces and keep them aside.

Step 2

Remove the pasta from the heat once it’s done, and strain it. To a pan, add a tsp of oil and some black pepper on high heat. Once it’s hot, fry the chopped cherry tomatoes cut side down. You can skip this step if you are making a Pesto Caprese Pasta Salad. Instead, let all the ingredients cool down for at least 20 minutes in the fridge.

Step 3

In a bowl, introduce all the ingredients except the basil leaves. Add a few tablespoons of pesto and stir. Once combined, plate and enjoy!
