Garlic infused olive oil is a great and easy way to infuse tons of flavor into a dish! Add 1 cup olive oil and 15 smashed garlic cloves into a small saucepan. On the smallest burner and on the lowest heat allow to simmer for 25-30 minutes. The oil will look slightly cloudy in the end. Allow to cool slightly before handling.
Go ahead and cook your pasta to al dente, “to the tooth”. Side note I found this “Regine” shaped pasta and I had to give it a try! Its so fun looking! While the pasta is cooking dice your mozzarella and tomatoes, add to a large bowl.
