Caprese Pesto Pasta Salad

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

3 cups dry small pasta

1/3 cup pesto, or more to taste

2 tablespoons olive oil

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 teaspoon pepper

1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar, more to taste

*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).

3 Add dressing to pasta and stir to coat. Fold in tomatoes, mozzarella, and fresh basil.
