Penne Tomato Salad

by - February 04, 2011


I cooked this for my family last Saturday. It was my first time to try the recipe from my Mom's cookbook and surprisingly it turned out really well. :) The family really enjoyed it and that's why I wanna share with you, guys the easy steps to make your own Penne Tomato Salad. :)

  • 500 g Penne pasta
  • 1 cup fresh basil leaves
  • 4 to 5 tomatoes, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • salt and pepper, to taste
>ADD PASTA to a large pan of rapidly boiling water and cook until just tender. Drain pasta and rinse well under cold water.
  1. Using a sharp knife, chop basil leaves into fine strips.
  2. In a bowl combine basil, tomato, garlic, olive oil and vinegar. Allow to stand for 15 minutes. Place drained pasta in a large salad bowl and add tomato mixture.
  3. Add parmesan, salt and pepper. Toss well and serve immediately.
Then serve immediately! Easy right?:) Have fun cooking!
