8 oz uncooked fusilli, or other spiral pasta
1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar, or more to taste
2 tsp olive oil
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1 cup(s) cherry tomato(es), or grape tomatoes, halved
1/2 cup(s) basil, fresh, chopped
2 oz whole milk low-moisture mozzarella cheese, smoked, diced (1/2 cup)
1/8 tsp table salt, or to taste
1/8 tsp black pepper, or to taste
