Before starting, add 10 cups water and 2 tsp salt to a large pot. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Wash and dry all produce. Gather all required cooking tools. Add fusilli to the boiling water. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until tender, 9-11 min. Drain noodles, then rinse under cold water until cool.
Halve tomatoes. Drain, then slice olives. Thinly slice basil. Halve cucumber lengthwise, then cut into 1/2-inch half-moons. Cut or tear bocconcini into quarters. Stir together bocconcini, tomatoes and 1 tbsp pesto in a small bowl, then season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
Whisk together remaining pesto, Italian dressing and 1/4 tsp sugar in a large bowl. Add fusilli, olives, marinated bocconcini, tomatoes, cucumbers and basil to the bowl with dressing. Season with salt and pepper, then toss to combine.
