OMG!!! A friend of mine made this and brought it to my house warming party and everyone RAVED about how good it is!! You can pretty much add or remove whatever you like!! So GOOD!! We use the Cheese Fantastico dressing!! Super Delicious and SUPER EASY!!!
Love this, added feta cheese crumbles and it was soooooo good!
A+ salad! Instead of the spinach tortellini we added 2 packages of the tri-color cheese filled tortellini. Also topped it off with some feta cheese crumbles. We used a caesar vinaigrette dressing (that we had on hand) in place of the oil and vinegar - - added a nice flavor. Didn't have marinated artichokes so we used the plain ones. * * The key was to let it set at least 3 hours for all of the flavors to settle.
I just used cheese tortellini from Trader Joe's and Vidalia onions and skipped the carrots (too lazy to grate them). This was phenomenal. People who claimed not to care for pasta salads loved it. I made the dressing with very high quality oil and vinegar, which brought this over the top. And it really was easy - it was a last minute addition to a party buffet based on things I had on hand.
We Loved it--I did add sliced scallions, 1 lb. large shrimp-
cut in half, a 12 oz jar of artichokes & an 8 oz. tub of
shredded 3 cheese romano-parmesan-asiago mix. It was scrumptious!
Everyone Scarfed it down. You could use any meat or skip the meat,
or add a jar of pimentos or chopped red bell peppers & or
diced celery too. Very versitile!
