Y’all, I’d like to say I am a pretty modest person. I mean, I have no problem admitting when I am awesome, but for the most part, I don’t like to go on and on about myself. This recipe, however, I am going to go on and on about. Do you ever feel like you have totally outdone yourself with something? Well, this is one of those times. This Baked Caprese Pasta is just SO delicious, I really can’t think of many pasta dishes that are as great. I probably shouldn’t say that, because I have lots of delicious pasta dishes on my blog, BUT this one is seriously delicious. It uses fresh tomatoes, fresh basil, fresh cheese…I mean, it should really be called healthy (ha!) with all these fresh wholesome ingredients.
One of the things I like best about this pasta, aside from it’s amazing taste, is that it comes together so quickly. You basically cook the pasta, then mix everything together, then bake for a few minutes. BAM! Dinner is served! I didn’t even go all out and make a real pesto…I pretty much just tossed the basil in the food processor with some asiago cheese and oil, and let it run for a few seconds. Deeeeeelicious!
I mean, maybe it’s just that I have such an affinity for cheese, but just look at how amazing that cheese looks!! Are you licking your screen yet?! If you need a quick, easy, and delicious weeknight meal, this is a total winner. If you have a super large skillet that you can actually boil pasta in, this could actually be a one pot meal. Mind. Blown.
