    ounces orecchiette (little ear-shaped pasta; about 3 cups uncooked)

  • 1

    pound pea-size mozzarella or fresh mozzarella, diced (Trader Joes)

  • 1

    pound grape tomatoes or pear tomatoes in assorted colors, halved

  • 6

    tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

    tablespoons white balsamic vinegar

    tablespoons minced fresh garlic chives or regular chives

  • 2

    tablespoons minced fresh oregano

Directions

Preparation Cook pasta in large pot of boiling salted water until tender but still firm to bite, stirring occasionally. Drain; return pasta to pot.
