Ingredients

Red Pepper and Mozzarella Salad: 

Directions

Preheat oven to 200 degrees F.

Add pasta to a large pot of boiling salted water and cook for 2 minutes less then package says. Drain and pour cool water over the top. Drain well and toss with 1 teaspoon olive oil.

In a nonstick saute pan, heat 1/4 cup olive oil; when hot, add 1/4 of the pasta and spread evenly in the pan. Turn heat down to medium and cook until brown on the bottom. Carefully turn over and continue cooking until brown on other side. Remove with a slotted spoon to plate and keep warm in the oven. Continue with other 3 batches, adding more olive oil as needed.

Divide crispy pasta among 4 plates and top with some Red Pepper and Mozzarella Salad.

Red Pepper and Mozzarella Salad: 

Just before serving, toss together the spinach, greens, peppers, mozzarella, and dressing. Taste for seasoning. Plate on top of crispy pasta cakes.
