I originally made this recipe on a lazy day last summer. My friends and I were sitting by the pool craving a cool pasta salad. The original recipe was made with feta, but I decided to try fresh mozzarella balls and I'm happy I did. This meal takes 15 minutes to prep and is great served fresh, or cold the next day. Whether you're in the mood for a steamy hot pasta dish, or a cold side at a barbecue, this is the perfect recipe!
