When I find something I really like, I can eat it regularly for quite a while before getting tired of it. It always helps when it's a really simple dish as well. Ever since my first caprese salad, I've had regular cravings for tomatoes, bocconcchini cheese and basil. It reappeared at my cousin's bar mitzvah (for which Giz and I catered) and for a combined Rosh Hashanah/Canadian Thanksgiving meal.
So, why stop there? After my initial caprese salad posting, Melissa recommended Krysta's pasta version. I opted for orzo instead and added some of my frozen pesto (Well - it's pesto that I froze. Don't worry it was thawed for the meal).
approx 1.5 cups of orzo pasta
3 plum tomatoes
container of mini bocconcchini
fresh basil (from this plant, that hates my guts right now)
approximately 1/2-2/3 of a cup of pesto
So good. Now I want some more.
