Tortellini Primavera

Recipe by  

"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."

Directions

  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.

I am the submitter of this recipe. In the instructions AR left out to be sure and rinse the tortellini in cold water and drain. If the pasta is not cool, it will melt the cheese.

I made this using grilled chicken instead of sausage and it was delicious. Also used Italian dressing mix that had a small amount of balsamic vinegar mixed in with the white vinegar that the mix call for. Very Yummy!

I made this salad to go with my Sunday chicken dinner. I made it the night before to save me some time. I did need the extra sauce. I liked it because it wasn't swimming in dressing like some pasta salads. It was very light.
