  1. Thanks for sharing! This recipe looks great. I recently started to enjoy Caprese salads and have been looking for a recipe to incorporate pasta into it. I’m not a fan of Alfredo – do you recommend any subsitutions?

    Thanks!

  2. Both pizza and pasta look delicious! I love the idea of turning caprese salad into a baked pasta dish–because we can never have enough caprese, can we?
