What makes this recipe is the balsamic vinegar. It really adds some nice depth to the tomatoes. Plus, adding the bocconcini was fun. I didn't love it because it took longer than 30 minutes and required three cooking techniques (grilling, boiling pasta and cooking veggies). However it is a great one dish meal. I served it with green beans and bread.
