Italian Pasta Salad with Balsamic Vinegar

You can make this simple Italian pasta in fewer than 30 minutes, and the presentation is super trendy — thanks to Mason jars. The jars make it easy to bring this pasta along to picnics and outdoor events, so start planning your next outing now.

Ingredients

  • 2/3 Cups elbow pasta
  • 1 Tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/3 Cup fresh mozzarella, diced
  • 1/3 Cup cherry tomatoes
  • 5 leaves of basil
  • 1/2 Tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1/3 Cup cooked ham, julienned

Directions

Bring a small pot of water to a boil. Cook pasta 1 minute less than package directions; drain. Drizzle with a tiny amount of olive oil to prevent the pasta from sticking together, then lay it flat on a platter to cool down.

Toss pasta with olive oil, mozzarella, cherry tomatoes, basil, balsamic vinegar, and ham; serve in Mason jars.
