Pesto Pasta Salad

Fresh Pesto Pasta Salad with homemade basil pesto, tomatoes and fresh mozzarella. An easy summer salad for everyone to enjoy.

When I was little, I didn’t really like summers. Well I don’t think anyone in India likes summers. It’s so hot, temperature is almost always 110F degrees + and on top of that there are power cuts for hours and days. So obviously what’s fun in sweating in that much heat without even a fan?
