Tomato Pasta Salad

I have been enjoying my own garden tomatoes and am always looking for new ways to enjoy them. This salad really celebrates the tomato. I used a homemade tomato pasta, fresh diced tomatoes and even a tomato salad dressing. The salad has fresh mozzarella cheese added to it, along with some hard cooked eggs. You could easily add cooked chicken or shrimp, if you prefer.  Here is the recipe for the salad and the dressing. I posted the recipe for the homemade tomato pasta yesterday. The link for the pasta recipe is at the bottom of this post. You can, of course, use store bought pasta, if you prefer.
