  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a rolling boil. Cook tortellini at a boil, stirring occasionally, until the pasta floats to the top and the filling is hot, 6 to 8 minutes; drain. Rinse tortellini with cold water until completely cooled; drain and transfer to a large bowl.
  2. Stir pepperoni, provolone cheese, artichoke hearts, black olives, Italian-style salad dressing, dry Italian dressing mix, and black pepper with the tortellini. Add more Italian dressing just before serving, if desired.

I have to admit that I followed this recipe loosely. I had about 1/2 of a 20 oz. package of fresh tortellini left that I needed to do something with, and this recipe fit the bill. I didn't have any pepperoni, so I substituted some small cubed German proscuitto that I had picked up at Aldi. I also didn't want to open a whole can of black olives, so I used Kalamata olives that I had already opened. I did follow the recipe for the rest, just kind of eye-balling the ingredients to match the amount of tortellini that I had. It was delicious, and my daughter was happy to take the left overs in her lunch today.

Very good recipe... Only had one can of artichokes in water and used Gazebo Room Greek salad dressing. Will make again!!!

This was really tasty! We split the recipe into two portions and to one we added the artichokes (Only had one jar on hand) and to the other half we used pickled banana peppers instead. Simple and easy! Be sure to use a good quality sharp provolone cheese.
