4 tablespoons olive oil, divided

½ cantaloupe, seeds removed, cut into ½ inch thick slices

1 pound whole grain pasta (such as penne or farfalle)

2 tablespoons lemon juice

½ teaspoon Dijon mustard

¼ teaspoon salt

⅛ teaspoon pepper

1 can chickpeas, rinsed and drained

3 ounces thinly sliced prosciutto, torn into small pieces

4 ounces fresh mozzarella, cut into bite-sized pieces

1 cup chopped fresh basil

  1. Use 1 tablespoon of the olive oil to brush both sides of the cantaloupe slices, then grill on an outdoor grill or grill pan until grill marks appear (about 2-3 minutes on each side).
  2. Once cool, cut grilled cantaloupe into bite-sized pieces, discarding the peel.
  3. Cook pasta according to package directions.
  4. While the pasta is cooking, whisk together the remaining 3 tablespoons olive oil with the lemon juice, the Dijon, the salt, and the pepper in a small bowl.
  5. In a large bowl, toss the cooked, drained pasta with the lemon Dijon dressing, then add the chickpeas, prosciutto, mozzarella, grilled cantaloupe, and basil, and toss until well combined.
