The toppings on this pasta are reminiscent of margherita pizza and make for a superquick meatless main dish.
8 ounces uncooked angel hair pasta
1/2 cup chopped fresh basil
1/4 cup chopped green onions (about 2)
1 teaspoon bottled minced garlic
1 (16-ounce) package cherry tomatoes, halved
1/2 cup (2 ounces) preshredded Parmesan cheese
2 teaspoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 cup (2 ounces) diced fresh mozzarella
How to Make It
Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and fat. Drain. Place in a large bowl.
While pasta cooks, combine basil, onions, minced garlic, and tomatoes in a food processor. Pulse 10 times or until coarsely chopped. Add Parmesan to pasta, stirring until cheese melts. Stir in tomato mixture, olive oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper; toss gently to coat pasta. Top with mozzarella.
