Warm Macaroni and Mozzarella Salad with Herbs

I am loving having the Food Network once again after 2 years of just network TV. When I see a recipe I know we would love, I just HAVE to try it. This one did not fail us! We made this with the Italian beef. Very good.

Warm Macaroni and Mozzarella Salad with Herbs

Paula Deen

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 8 ounces (2 cups) macaroni
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh basil leaves
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley leaves
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded mozzarella

In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Set aside

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over medium heat. Cook the macaroni according to the package directions. Drain the macaroni and transfer to a medium serving bowl. Add the basil and parsley and half of the dressing. Stir to combine. Let it sit for 1 minute to cool slightly, then add the mozzarella and the remaining dressing. Serve warm.
