Red, White and Green Pasta Served Hot or Cold

I hope all is well with you guys this week, I'm still swamped so here is a fabulous recipe from my archives that is well worth making this time of year. I love creating recipes that can be served hot or cold, especially in those warm winter or summer months. I am always looking for a meatless Gluten Free meal. 
Red, White and Green Pasta Served Hot or Cold Ingredients:
1 Bag of Penne Pasta Gluten Free
1 bullion cube
2 tablespoon Olive Oil
1/4 cup olive oil
8-10 cloves of garlic
2 teaspoons Salt
2 teaspoons Pepper
The juice of One Large Lemon
1 cup of grated Parmesan
25 fresh basil leaves chopped about a ½ cup
1 cup of chopped buffalo mozzarella
6 small tomatoes Chopped about a cup

Cook Pasta according to directions adding in 2 tablespoons Olive Oil this help the pasta from not sticking and 1 bullion cube to flavor the pasta.
After Pasta is cooked strain and set aside.

In the same pan that you boiled the pasta in place 1/4 cup olive oil, 8-10 cloves of garlic minced or grated, 2 teaspoons Salt & 2 teaspoons Pepper cook until golden.

Add the juice of a lemon being careful to not add the seeds.
Simmer on low heat next adding cooked penne pasta tossing until evenly coated with Lemon Garlic sauce.
Add in your Parmesan and coat noodles thoroughly.

After Cheese has pretty much melted into noodles add last three ingredients tomatoes, buffalo mozzarella and basil. Toss and serve either chilled or right out of the Pot! You decide.
