Penne Caprese Pasta Recipe



  1. Pour 1 12oz. package of Barilla Pronto Penne into a large skillet {approximately 12 inches in diameter} and add 3 cups of cold water into the pan. Make sure that the water covers the pasta.
  2. Cook on high for 10 minutes and stir regularly {GCG TIP: I added a tablespoon of olive oil to prevent sticking and about 1/2 teaspoon of salt}.
  3. Cut both the fresh mozzarella balls and cheery tomatoes in half.
  4. Once water is absorbed, add the jar of Barilla Tomato & Basil Sauce, the fresh mozzarella, and the cheery tomatoes, and chopped fresh basil.
  5. Garnish with parmesan cheese and serve.
