8 oz uncooked fusilli, or other spiral pasta
1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar, or more to taste
2 tsp olive oil
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1 cup(s) fresh cherry tomato(es), or grape tomatoes, halved
1/2 cup(s) basil, fresh, chopped
2 oz whole milk low moisture mozzarella cheese, smoked, diced (1/2 cup)
1/8 tsp table salt, or to taste
1/8 tsp black pepper, or to taste
- Cook pasta according to package directions; drain and transfer to a large bowl. Add vinegar, oil and oregano; toss to coat.
- Fold in tomatoes, basil and mozzarella; season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve warm or chilled. Yields about 1 cup per serving.
- For added flavor, try sun-dried tomatoes: Place 1/4 cup of dried sun-dried tomatoes in a bowl and cover them with boiling water; set aside for 10 minutes to allow the tomatoes to plump up. Drain well and substitute them for half the cherry tomatoes.

My boyfriend and I really enjoy this dish.
it was ok. kinda of tasty but i think the basil 1/2 cup is way to much for this reciepe. otherwise it was not bad.
It was good, but I needed to add more oil/baslsamic vinager or it was really dry.
Very good and easy but could use a little extra olive oil.
