    Easy, light and delicious for a picnic or summer salad. We had it at an outdoor picnic on a really hot day and it was perfect.

    We really enjoyed this but I did make a few changes. I used whole wheat rotini for the pasta, added 2 tbsp. of balsamic and some fresh oregano to the olive oil, s&p, red pepper and garlic and used that as a dressing. I also added a roasted red pepper And mini turkey pepperoni. I will make again with these modifications.

    This was very good and fresh. I increased the olive oil to 1 1/2 T. the salt to 1t. and 6 cloves of garlic. I thought once it was sitting in the fridge the oil would absorb into the pasta and be somewhat dry. Very, very good.

    This is wonderful! The flavors of fresh tomatoes, basil and mozzarella shine on their own with flavors that enhance, not detract!
