Penne Pasta Summer Salad

Nonna's Pantry presents an awesome summer pasta dish / salad when you want a kick of freshness.
Beautifully balanced flavours, the sweetness of organic vine ripened cherry tomatoes, the slight bitterness of fresh arugula, the mild saltiness of ricotta salata / stagionata and the pungent spiciness of fresh garlic.
Wonderful!
