Ziti alla Caprese
1 cup Basil leaves – shredded
4 cups Lidia’s Flavors of Italy Tomato and Basil Sauce
1 lb. Ziti
1 cup grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese
1 lb. Bocconcini Mozzarella di Bufala – cut in half
(If using regular mozzarella, cut in 1” cubes
Directions: In a skillet bring Lidia’s Flavors of Italy Tomato and Basil Sauce to a boil.
While the sauce is heating, cook the ziti in 5 quarts of salted boiling water until al dente (tender but still firm), about 8 minutes. Drain the pasta and toss with the sauce. Stir in the basil, mozzarella and grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, toss well, and serve immediately.
