It’s been so dang hot lately that there are times I don’t even want to leave my house. I know, those who know me are shocked! I love to be on the go! But since I have a few half-empty packages of pasta in my pantry, fresh tomatoes from the garden and some leftover baby pearl mozzarella cheese, I figured I could make a better lunch than anything I’d get from a takeout window.
This is one of those recipes that I hate to actually call a recipe, because it’s so easy and thrown together. But hey, that is how recipes go. It was delicious, so simple to make and perfect for a VERY hot summer day!
