chicken caprese pasta salad


the other night i was staring into the fridge trying to figure out what to make for supper.
there was a mishmash of leftovers--a little bit of this, a little bit of that but nothing was jumping out at me.
all i could focus on was the yummy fresh mozzarella and basil, wishing my children would love caprese salad like i do.
then i had an idea.
there was that one time when i saw someone somewhere make a pasta salad using the same ingredients for caprese salad...hmm...
so i gave it a try (aka threw a bunch of stuff together) and i must admit, it was delicious.
john and i devoured it.

keeping it real, the kids had buttered noodles and leftover meatballs for dinner.
:)
but maybe you'll like it too. 
don't skimp on the fresh basil and mozzarella.
you can leave out the chicken but they are essential.

yum.
it's like summertime in a bowl.

confession...

I spotted your coffee maker in the background and was unable to focus on your recipe because all I want now is for you to make me a cup of coffee
