Tomato Pasta Salad

This is a recipe from food network.It is a light meal in which you mix cooked pasta with tomato salad.Since everything was there I gave it a try with little adjustments.


Pasta : 1 cup
Tomatoes: 2 big
Lemon juice: 1 big lemon
Lemon zest: 1/2 lemon
Oregano:1/2 tsp
Pepper:1/2 tsp
Salt:as per taste
Olive oil: 2 tspn
Ricota cheese: 2 tbsp(crumbled or cubed)
Coriander leaves: for garnish

Cook the pasta as per the instructions.I used bow tie or farfalle even though the recipe was meant for fusili or cork screw pasta.

While pasta is being cooked,in a bowl,add chopped tomatoes,oregano,pepper,salt,zest and juice.The recipe did not have oregano,but I added it.Mix well.

Add the cooked pasta to this bowl, and toss.Add crumbled or cubed ricotta cheese,olive oil and garnish with coriander/cilantro leaves.Serve.

It is very tasty and next time I am going to try this adding other veggies as well.Hope you too try this.
