Orecchiette pasta with pesto, roasted tomatoes and mozzarella
Every Wednesday in our house it's pasta night.....even when I was a little girl.
I always looked forward to eating any version of pasta...Lasagna, Stuffed Shells and
my family's secret sauce for spaghetti...Throw in a side salad and and some garlic
bread and this girl is in heaven. Last night, I threw together this dish and it was
really easy and very flavorful! I hope you enjoy.
