  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • handful of fresh chopped basil

  • 3 tbsp. balsamic vinegar

  • salt & pepper to taste


  • Cook pasta according to package directions and rinse thoroughly with cold water.

  • Add remaining ingredients and toss together.

You can also cut up fresh mozzarella yourself. 
I like to use ciliegine (which is the smaller mozzarella balls) mainly for the nice presentation. 😉
