Red White and Olive Pasta

Simple pasta with a light olive oil dressing and a kick from those red pepper flakes.

Red White and Black Pasta
3/4 cup fusilli
3 mozzarella balls, sliced in half
4 grape tomatoes, sliced in half
3 black olives, sliced
1 Tbsp garlic infused olive oil
1 Tbsp parmesan cheese
1 Tbsp crushed red pepper flakes
1 Tbsp pumpkin seeds
a tiny bit of champagne vinegar

1. Toss fusilli with sliced mozzarella, grape tomatoes, and olives.
2. Drizzle garlic infused olive oil over pasta, sprinkle with rest of the ingredients. Goes nicely with a salad of mixed greens in balsamic vinegar dressing.
