"This is a quick pasta salad that is kicked up a notch by using tortellini instead of regular pasta. It is great for a cook-out or potluck because it doesn't include mayonnaise."

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook tortellini at a boil until tender yet firm to the bite and filling is warmed through, 5 to 7 minutes; drain.
  2. Stir cooked tortellini, tomatoes, broccoli, yellow bell pepper, Parmesan cheese, and pepperoni together in a bowl. Pour in 1 cup Italian dressing and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours. If salad looks dry, stir in an additional 1/4 cup Italian dressing before serving.


  • Cook's Note:
  • I have tried several types of Italian dressing and have found that Newman's Own Family Recipe Italian(R) works best in this recipe.

Great cool summer dish! I didn't have tortellini so cheese ravioli was substituted. Thanks for posting.

Very tasty. I think I would prefer a creamy Caesar dressing, but that is a matter of personal taste. I thought the Italian was a little tart, but that could also be the brand I used.
