Toss in tomatoes, peppers and basil. In a mixing bowl whisk together remaining oil from the marinade with mustard. Pour over the top of the ingredients in the casserole dish.

Prepare to be amazed!! Our whole family loved this one! The combination of mustard basil & balsamic is to die for. I have made this warm and also as a cold pasta salad. Both ways are fabulous!
