Pasta with Sundried Tomatoes and Mozzarella

This recipe is from Ina Garten, Barefoot Contessa. So, I can't claim it. But what I can claim is that I realized it would be a perfect Farmer's Market Diet recipe. And that it would be a perfect dish for my dear friend, and blog co-author's bridal shower. Almost everything in this recipe is directly from the market (with the exception of the olive oil, red wine vinegar, and pasta).

5 sun-dried tomatoes in oil, drained
2 tbls red wine vinegar
6 tbls olive oil
1 clove of garlic, diced
1 tsp kosher salt
1/4 tsp black pepper

Blend all above ingredients in a food processor until well-blended like a vinaigrette, set aside.

chop 3-4 ripe tomatoes
dice 3/4 cup good black olives, 6 sun-dried tomatoes in oil (drained), and 1 lb fresh mozzarella
Wash and julienne 1 cup of basil leaves
Set aside chopped and diced ingredients.

Boil 1/2 lb of fusilli pasta

Toss pasta with chopped an diced ingredients and dressing.

Top with freshly grated Parmesan cheese.
Eat. Don't eat too much, remember you're trying to lose weight.
