Here is a quick and easy pasta salad, perfect for the summer to fall transition time. It can be served either hot or cold and pairs well with heavy wheat beer.


2 large tomatoes
2 Tbsp olive oil
2 Tbsp minced garlic
1 tsp salt and 1 tsp pepper
1 large candy onion, sliced
1 large red pepper, diced
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
5 oz. elbow macaroni, cooked according to package directions and drained
Additional salt and pepper to taste


In a food processor, puree the tomatoes and garlic with 1 Tbsp olive oil. Add 1 tsp salt and 1 tsp pepper. Let sit while sautéing the onion and red pepper.

Sauté the candy onion and red pepper in 1 Tbsp olive oil. Cook over medium heat for about 5 minutes.

Add the tomato puree mixture to the onions and peppers. Bring to a boil for 2 minutes.

In a mixing bowl, combine the cooked noodles, tomato mixture, and 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese.

Sprinkle mozzarella cheese on top of each individual portion and season to taste with salt and pepper. Enjoy.
