One Pot Caprese Pasta

I have said it before and I will say it again. I Love these one pot pasta dishes!!.....The fact that you put the dry pasta in with the rest of the ingredients is just amazing! And I usually have everything on hand which makes it great for those nights when you need to get home and make a fast dinner! Here is what I did for this one....Enjoy!!

1 box Farfalle (Bowtie Pasta)
1 box (32 ounces) Chicken Broth
1 Cup Water
about 20 grape tomatoes (cut in half)
1 -14 1/2 ounce can Petite Diced Tomatoes
1/2 Cup Fresh Basil Leaves (chopped)
1 small shallot (sliced)
3 cloves garlic (minced)
salt and pepper
1 Cup shredded mozzarella
10-12 small mozzarella balls (cut in half)
Add all ingredients except cheeses to a Dutch oven or pot with a lid
bring to boil and stir, turn to simmer cover and cook for about 20-25 minutes  (stirring every 10 minutes) until liquid is absorbed and pasta is cooked
Once done  stir and add shredded mozzarella and mozzarella balls
serve and enjoy,,,you can also garnish with parmesan cheese if you like
