1 (20 ounce) package
BUITONI® Family Size Three Cheese Tortellini
Italian salad dressing
chopped green bell pepper
shredded Parmesan cheese
1 (2.25 ounce) can
sliced ripe olives, drained
Made this for a shower, everyone liked it-thought I bought it. I changed things a bit-I used 1 orange pepper and 1 yellow pepper, I added 2 cloves of fresh garlic (minced),also as suggested, I added 1/2 of a red onion, and I used grape tomatoes, which I added, along with the cheese, in the morning. The rest I made the night before to give the flavors time to blend.
I used Newmann's Own dressing but still didn't care for this recipe. Not enough flavor, needs more spices.
I made this salad for a 4th of July party for 15 people, everyone LOVED it even the kids. It was so easy to make and tastes so good. I can't wait for another party to make it again !!!
The next time I make it I would add a couple things. I would add about a 1/2 cup of diced red onions, and a avacado. It is still good just the way it is, but to add a little more zip !!!!
This was terrific! I used this for two covered-dish meals I had within one day of each other. I couldn't find Buitoni's tortellini, but I did find a huge bag (42 oz, I think) of another brand and it still worked out great (half the bag for each batch). For the first batch, my mother was helping and unknowingly used a different salad dressing than I was planning to use, and it was still great. I used the Newman's Own Family Italian for the second batch and did like it better.
To make things a little easier, I used thawed frozen baby broccoli florets (again was able to find a large enough bag that I had enough for two batches) rather than fresh florets. I also used plum/roma tomatoes, sliced in half then cut into several slices. They're pretty and have really good flavor, especially this time of year when local garden tomatoes are unavailable.
This recipe has substance to it, is healthy, and is delicious. I'd definitely try it again!
I used Newman's Own Parmesan Dressing, grape tomatoes (halved) and chopped orange bell pepper. This turned out great! I didn't want the run-of-the-mill Italian dressing covered pasta salad, and the parmesan dressing was outstanding. I also used lots of freshed cracked black pepper.
This the perfect pasta salad. Everyone had seconds and it's so easy to make. I used Paul Newman's Italian salad dressing.
I loved this pasta dish! It was delicous! I have four kids and it is not always easy to make a dinner quickly that everyone likes. With this recipe, dinner was quick and easy and it is now a family favorite!
I made this last night for the first time and it was delicious! I did take the suggestions of other reviews and added about 1/2 cup of red onion and it did give it more flavor, however I think next time I would reduce it to 1/4 cup because it was a little overpowering. I also used red pepper instead of green and I think it was better than the green would have been. I added salt and pepper too for more flavor. Another thing I did was use frozen broccoli and boiled it for about 2 minutes and it was great. This salad is even better the second day.
