Simple Pasta a la Caprese

made my favorite pasta dish for lunch, and it is SUPER easy.

Boil two cups pasta of your choice (I like shells or twirly bits because they hold the sauce better)
heat up some olive oil in a pan with two cloves minced garlic and a pint of cherry or grape tomatoes cut in half and sprinkle a pinch of salt over it all.
When the tomatoes start to get wrinkly on the outside, squish them down with a spoon or fork.
Take four to five large basil leaves and slice them into thin strips.
Cube up a few slices of fresh mozzarella.
toss in the pasta, cheese and basil and stir until the cheese just starts to get melty.
drizzle a little more olive oil and salt and pepper to taste.
