Easy Caprese

One of the best things about summer meals are salads. By far my favorite salad is a fresh caprese salad–especially with fresh tomatoes from my garden.  Now that the weather is finally warming up and summer is on the way, I decided to make myself a big bowl of pasta salad.  This recipe combines what I love about a caprese salad with pasta.  This is quick, easy, and delicious and makes either a filling dinner or a refreshing side.
