Here is another classic example of something I make very often, but put a different twist on it EVERY time!  Sometimes I throw in kalamata olives, other times I put in some cubes of fresh really depends on what I have on hand.
Last weeks version looked like this:

This time I used:
  • 3 chopped ripe tomatoes 
  • 1/2 chopped onion 
  • 3 cloves of garlic minced 
  • 1/2 cup of fresh mozzarella chopped into cubes 
  • a handful of torn fresh basil 
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil 
  • Balsamic vinegar (it's worth splurging on the good stuff) 
  • Salt, Pepper, italian seasoning 

*Just mix the first 5 ingredients in a bowl, drizzle with EVOO, add a splash of balsamic vinegar, and then season to taste!  How could you go wrong with a little of this, and a little of that?!?  Publix sells this delicious Italian multi-grain bread that I cut it into thin slices, and toast a bit.  Throw some bruschetta on top, and enjoy!  

I seriously could make a meal of it.  Moment of truth....I sometimes do!  I've been known to fill up on soups, salads, and appetizers instead of the actual meal!  :)

Speaking of the actual meal...the Penne alla Vodka I made from Skinnytaste was delicious!  I highly recommend it!
Have you ever tried whole grain pasta?!?  I admit there is nothing like the real thing, but as a weeknight alternative I LOVE it!  It is good, give it a chance!
