Ingredients

1 garlic clove

Kosher salt

1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes

2 pounds heirloom tomatoes, assorted colors and sizes

12 ounces fresh mozzarella, diced

1/2 cup chopped fresh basil leaves

1/4 cup chopped fresh mint leaves

1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil

1 (13.25-ounce) package Whole Grain Thin Spaghetti

Directions

  1. Crush and chop the garlic with 2 teaspoons salt and pepper flakes. Cut the tomatoes into 1 to 2 inch pieces. Halve or quarter them, if small. Toss the tomatoes with the seasoned garlic, mozzarella, herbs, and extra-virgin olive oil. (This can be prepared up to 2 hours ahead).
  2. Cook pasta according to the package directions. Drain and toss with the tomato mixture. Serve warm or at room temperature.
  3. [Styling Notes: What makes this beautiful is a great variety of tomato shapes, sizes, and colors, including green, yellow, orange, and red to dark brown blood red. A variety of cuts also give it a beautiful texture and a "Fresh-from-the Farm" look.]
