Caprese Penne with Prosciutto

Caprese Penne 009 Fresh tomatoes, basil and mozzarella are tossed together with penne and sliced prosciutto for a super fast, super cheap summer dinner.

Caprese Penne 004 After a busy day at work, nothing beats a quick, fresh and healthy dinner!

While the penne cooks, slice and dice the other ingredients, then toss and eat!

Caprese Penne 006 As leftovers, it's great cold for a lunch the next day too.

The prosciutto is of course optional and this would be just as yummy "vegetarian style" with just the veggies.
