This is going to be made all through the summer because it is so dang yummy!!!!!

*Just a note from me, I doubled all the dressing ingredients and it was perfect
1 1/2 cups halved grape tomatoes, I used diced Romas because they are exploding right now in my garden
1 1/2 cups small pearlini fresh mozzarella balls, cut in half
6 or more fresh basil leaves, cut in ribbons
1 Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain but do not rinse and cool.
2 Whisk together pesto, olive oil, salt, garlic powder, pepper, and balsamic vinegar (these are the ingredients that I doubled).
