Quick and Easy 'No-Cook' Summer Tomato-Mozzarella Pasta

Well, you do have to cook the pasta!

I made this up last week when my family and I were all starving and it was hot and I happened to have some fresh organic Rigatoni pasta from the Emmaus Farmer's Market (which was delicious!).

Everyone loved it and it was so easy, I would definitely make it again in a snap.

Try it yourself and see!
