Bocconcini and Roasted Tomato Pasta Salad
Caprese salad is a favorite from Capri featuring fresh mozzarella, sliced ripe tomatoes, and basil. This dish reimagines caprese, adding pasta, bocconcini (bite-size mozzarella pieces), roasted tomatoes, and aromatic smoked olive oil. The type of oil I prefer comes from the Smoked Olive; feel free to substitute plain extra virgin olive oil. Serve the salad family-style in a shallow bowl or on a platter.
