Recipe by Sarah Stone
"The traditional Caprese salad is modified to pasta form. The mozzarella used is a fresh mozzarella, if you use the brick style, it will not be the same. If you can't find the pearlini mozzarella, use the cieglini and cut it in half. Regular rotini pasta can be used but the cooking time will be different."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

Very good pasta salad. Easy to make and I like the fact that the dressing is made fresh and not from a bottle.
Yum, Yum, Yum – we thoroughly enjoyed this pasta salad made with tomatoes and basil from our garden. I mixed this up in the morning to give the flavors time to marry, with the exception of the basil. I added the basil about 30 minutes before serving so that it would be fresh. This is an outstanding salad with lots of flavor. It will be repeated in our house. Thank you, blondeprincess, for sharing your recipe!
Very good! I followed the recipe exactly except I didn't have fresh basil so I used dried. I'm sure it would be even yummier with fresh! Will be making this again.
Qucik and easy just used healthier noodels the husband loved it.
This was good but was missing something. I think I would use fresh minced garlic if I make it again. It's good but tasted like store bought. And yes, it's very salty once you make the mixture. I made a day ahead of my bbq and when I served it, the salt was not an issue. It needs to meld for awhile.
It was very tasting. I will make again but this time about half the garlic and salt it ask for.
This is pretty good! I think it could have used a bit more flavor, or maybe another element, but overall, nice easy and goes together quick!
Great! Made this for guests with mini penne and we all loved it.
