Thankfully this recipe can feed a crowd or simple cut it in half and have enough to serve a family of four.

Now I don’t know about you, but I am so ready for summer! This has been yet another cold winter, and though I can feel the warm air coming in it’s still not here yet and I find myself making this pasta salad in my wool sweater here dreaming away. But it’s coming, I can feel it, I promise you I can 🙂 mindwell can someone turn up the heat just a bit ha!

So what is Bocconcini anyway? Well it’s a type of cheese that originates from Naples in sunny Italy. It tastes a lot like mozzarella however has a subtle yet distinct taste that works so well in this pasta salad.

This salad can be enjoyed pretty much any time of year, but I know it will be best enjoyed on those long summer nights out on the back patio! I can picture it now 🙂 You can use pretty much any type of tomatoes for this recipe, baby tomatoes work great too so just use what you have on hand.

 

Toss it all together in some healthy Ranch dressing and you will be enjoying a fresh pasta salad in not time at all. Also why not whip up some healthy raspberry sweet tea to enjoy alongside, see my recipe below for that!

 

Typically Bocconcini cheese, comes in 200 gram containers. So if your wanting to recreate this exact recipe, it’s best to buy two of them or purchase a larger bag bocconcini if your grocery carries.
