  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook the bow-tie pasta at a boil, stirring occasionally, until cooked through yet firm to the bite, about 12 minutes; drain and cool to room temperature.
  2. Combine tomatoes, bocconcini, olives, olive oil, basil, and oregano in a large bowl; toss to evenly coat. Add pasta to tomato mixture and toss.

When we lived in the northeast I'd make a sauce(gravy) every Sunday for my family, that's what Italians do! Now that we live in the southwest the summers are a little to hot to make a sauce all ...

So delicious! Perfect for a summer evening.

This was very tasty! Thanks for a great simple recipe!

It was great... Just add salt and pepper

This was so delicious. I served it warm because I had to reduce the tomatoes otherwise my children would have picked them out. I'll make this again. Just delicious!!!

Simple, fresh and delicious! Be sure to use fresh herbs and quality ingredients and you will end up with an authentic Italian treat. I whipped this up for my kids to take in their lunches today,...

The recipe is great. I added a bit more olive oil, but the overall flavor is light and sweet. Will definitely make again.

Love this! Simple and delicious! Have made it twice now.
