Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook the pasta according to package directions. 

Drain and rinse with cold water to cool the pasta. Set aside. 

Drain the Mozzarella pearls. 

To a large salad bowl, combine pasta, tomatoes, Mozzarella, and basil. 

In a large jar with tight fitting lid, add the garlic, Balsamic vinegar, Olio d'Natalia, salt & pepper. Attach the lid and give it a good shake, shake, shake!!! 

Generously pour the dressing over the salad. Toss well to combine. This is so good, fresh and .....lovely with a glass of wine!
