We love this salad! Sometimes if I'm feeling lazy, Ill just use bottled italian dressing or even mix up a batch of Good Seasons. If I have green pepper on hand, I'll usually chop that up and throw it in there too. I've also done this with frozen cheese tortellini and tri-colored tortellini with great results. This is a simple, great tasting salad and just a little different from regular pasta salad...Always a hit! Thanks for sharing. :)

This was VERY good, but a tad dry...not sure if I added too many ingredients, but next time I will double the sauce. My kids who are 4 and 3 love it as well.

Big hit at our house! Took some reviewers advice and used a variety of olives, marinated artichokes, and marinated mozzarella balls from the "Mediterranean Bar" (next to the salad bar) at the grocery store. Added slivered red & green peppers, halved cherry tomatoes, and hard salami. Used tri-colored cheese tortellini - and after cooking, tossed it in a little bit of the marinade from the container of olives, artichokes, and mozzarella so it wouldn't stick together before I added in all the other ingredients. When finished, to help with marinating - I put the whole salad in a gallon size ziploc bag and laid it flat in the fridge. Every so often, I flipped it over to mix it up a little bit. Great space saver, too! Needed to make several salads at the same time and marinated them this way, stacked on top of each other!

Excellent! I actually doubled this recipe the first time I made it and it was ALL GONE before the end of the night. The only thing I did different was added extra green onions and instead of marinated artichoke hearts, I used the plain artichoke hearts and let them marinate in Italian dressing for about a half hour before adding them in. I also skipped the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and white vinegar and just used more of the Italian dressing (Wishbone) with some added Italian herb seasoning added to it. Made it simpler and I believe just as yummy! makign it again for another party this month!

It was not bad at all, tastes delicious but I had to make various adjustments which is why I gave it 4 stars. First I added green and red bell peppers as well as cherry tomatoes to add color and variety. I also added more Italian seasoning (more like 2.5 teaspoons or so) as well as some red pepper flakes for a bit of heat. Real easy recipe, I liked it a lot and the combination of taste was great - but not really out of this world.

Only thing I changed was the dressing. I used Kens Italian. It was the hit of the cookout!!
