Ingredients

Serves Tool

Serves To:USMetric
2 Tablespoon(T)  fresh parmesan cheese, shaved
1 Ounce(oz)  fresh basil leaves
12   black olives, pitted
7 Ounce(oz)  buffalo mozzarella, cubed

Preparation

Bring a large pan of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook over medium heat for about 10 minutes, or according to the package instructions. When cooked, the pasta should be tender but still firm to the bite. Drain, rinse under cold running water and drain again. Let cool. While the pasta is cooking put the pine nuts in a dry skillet and cook over low heat for 1 to 2 minutes, until golden brown. Remove from the heat, transfer to a dish and let cool. To make the dressing: Put the oil, vinegar and basil into a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper and stir together well. Cover with plastic wrap and set to one side. To assemble the salad: Divide the pasta between serving bowls. Add the pine nuts, tomatoes, red bell pepper, onion, cheese and olives. Scatter over the basil leaves, then drizzle over the dressing. Garnish with fresh parmesan cheese shavings.

Dressing:
