Summer Fresh Tomato Basil Caprese Pasta Salad



On summer nights our family likes to have late night dinners outside in the patio. We light the candles and turn on the party lights and talk about our day. One of our favorite dinners is to have a platter of build your own caprese sandwiches. With a little variation, fresh tomatoes and basil from your garden, mozzarella, and fresh cooked pasta, you have the makings for your own magical summer night. ~Amy
