This easy pesto pasta salad is made with pesto, cherry tomatoes, mozzarella cheese, spices, and fresh basil. It’s a great pasta dish to bring to a summer potluck or picnic!
Love how this recipe is a perfect way to use garden-fresh basil, and tomatoes.

If you’re looking to keep your basil pesto pasta fresh, then you’ll want to store it in an airtight container in the fridge. This way, your pasta will last for up to five days.
I love using mini mozzarella pearls because they are cute, and hold the flavors really well. I love how soft and pillowy they are.
