Yum! Skipped the onion and mozzarella and used grape tomatoes because that's what I had on hand. Fresh basil really makes this taste so good and different from so many other pasta salads. Thanks...

Very Good! I chopped my tomatoes.

Great recipe. Used orchiette pasta, halved cherry tomatoes, and shredded mozzarella. Having elements the same size worked well.

Very tasty, I added a little less dressing.
