In the kitchen: Tortellini Caprese

Is there anything better than cheese splashed with balsamic vinegar?  I think not.

This is one of those recipes that really isn't a recipe but it was a grand winner for a light supper on a warm night.  I love a caprese salad, caprese sandwich, and now caprese pasta!  The whole thing took about 20 minutes to come together and the leftovers were even better the next day!

1 package prepared tortellini
1 fresh mozzarella ball, cut into cubes
1 cup cherry tomatoes quartered
1 large bunch of basil cut to shreds
olive oil and balsamic vinegar
salt and pepper if you'd like

Boil the tortellini to package directions.  Drain and cool the tortellini with running water. When the tortellini is no longer hot to the touch toss with mozzarella, tomatoes, basil, oil and balsamic.  Don't be shy with that vinegar!  Season to taste - we just used pepper.  Serve it up!
