Pasta Salad with Roasted Tomatoes and Mozzarella

Hello – this is Julia from the food blog JuliasAlbum.com (you can also find me on PINTEREST) with a great Summer recipe for you! If you’re looking for a delicious, flavorful Summer salad, this colorful Pasta Salad with Roasted Tomatoes and Mozzarella is the perfect choice! It’s an impressive starter that’s super easy to make; a great side dish to bring to a cookout, a picnic, or a dinner party.

I love that this recipe uses fresh ingredients, such as fresh cherry (or grape) tomatoes and fresh Mozzarella balls, but what makes this salad extra special is that the tomatoes are oven-roasted with olive oil, garlic, salt, and oregano until they are softened, and infused with a lot of flavor! You will want to eat all those tomatoes before even adding them to the salad:

After roasting the tomatoes, you’ll combine them with the cooked pasta, Mozzarella balls, fresh (or dried) basil, along with all the juices and any drippings from the pan where you roasted the tomatoes.

Then, you’ll quickly whip up a super easy homemade salad dressing and mix it up with the rest of the ingredients! The resulting dish is healthy, light, and gluten free friendly (if you use gluten free brown rice pasta)! It’s so easy to make and looks so beautiful and presentable!

And, here are the changes I made to the original BHG recipe:

  • For the salad dressing, I used balsamic vinegar instead of white wine vinegar only because that’s all I had on hand. Either type of vinegar will work great, but I really liked that the balsamic vinegar added the richness and the fruitiness to this salad!
  • If you don’t have fresh basil, use dried basil (in a much smaller quantity). The recipe calls for 1/2 cup fresh basil – use about 1 teaspoon of dried basil instead and add more, to taste.
  • To make this salad gluten free, use brown rice pasta spirals.
