Pasta salads are cool, light and full of flavor. Versatile, too – you can toss almost anything into a pasta salad! But pasta salads are only as flavorful as it’s ingredients, and that’s where Il Villaggio comes in!
Proteins, vegetables and summer fruits all pair beautifully with Il Villaggio cheeses, offering a wide range of gourmet Italian flavor options that are just right for late summer and early fall dining.
Caprese Pasta Salad
Juicy grape tomatoes, milky Il Villaggio mozzarella and fresh basil come together to make an incredibly refreshing salad. We recommend using fusilli pasta because it’s easier to eat with a fork. The acidity of the tomatoes cut thorough our mozzarella’s luxurious texture and the basil adds a nice summery pop.
Parmigiano-Reggiano, Bacon, Spinach & Pine nuts
Here’s a salad that’s full of contrasting textures and bold flavors. Start off with penne or fusilli pasta, add chopped spinach, bites of bacon, crunchy pine nuts and a generous amount of grated Il Villaggio Parmigiano-Reggiano.
Gorgonzola, Chicken, Grapes & Almonds
Salty and creamy Il Villaggio Gorgonzola is the star of any salad it’s used on. Add crumbles to cooked pasta along with grilled chicken, grapes and crunchy almonds. This pasta salad offers wonderful textural contrasts that are punctuated with bold blasts of flavor.
