cut_and_cook

 
Cook the pasta as described on the package (al dente). While the pasta is cooking you can cut the mozzarella and the tomatoes. I divide the tomatoes once or twice, depending on their size. The mozzarella is cut into pieces roughly the same size as the tomato pieces.

Add everything to the bowl, except the arugula! It takes a long time mix everything up if you add the arugula directly. Mix the ingredients until everything is coated than add the arugula and mix it again.
