Pasta of the Month – Christmas Pasta

Super simple pasta side dish that reflects the colors of Christmas – Red, Green and White…

Super simple and ready fast!  Want to try it?  

What you need:

  • 3 cups of cooked green pasta – any green pasta will work
  • ¼ cup of butter
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • ¾ cup cubed mozzarella
  • ¾ cup halved grape tomatoes






How to Do it:

Place the butter in the bottom of a sauce pan and melt over medium heat.  Continue cooking it until it begins to lightly brown then turn heat down to low.  Be careful not to burn it!

Add the garlic and stir for a minute or two, then add the tomatoes.

Mix in the pasta and add salt and pepper to taste (We like only a little salt, but a lot of pepper).

Just before serving, toss in the cheese until it is just slightly melted.

What colors are Christmas?  Red, Green and White – Christmas Pasta!

Serves 4

    So pretty, easy and festive! That looks yummy. I love fresh mozz. and tomatoes with my pasta. I’d probably add just a few flakes of basil too. Pinned.
