Recipe Tuesday

So, since the Tortellini Salad from last week was so tasty...(ok, I am not 100% sure Dustin LOVED it, but he ate it without complaints) I decided to post the recipe. The only change I would make is cutting the broccoli smaller!

Tortellini Salad
Serves 6
1 (7-oz) package cheese tortellini
1 c. broccoli florets
1/2 c. chopped fresh parsley
1 (6-oz) jar marinated artichokes, drained
2 green onions, chopped
1/2 c. Italian salad dressing
2 1/2 tsp. chopped fresh basil
3 Tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese
6 cherry tomatoes, halved, optional
  1. Cook tortellini according to package directions; drain. Rinse and drain again.
  2. Combine tortellini with broccoli, parsley, artichokes, and green onions in a large bowl; toss lightly to mix.
  3. Pour salad dressing over tortellini mixture; sprinkle with basil and toss gently. Cover; chill until ready to serve.
  4. Toss salad again just before serving. Sprinkle with Parmesan. Arrange cherry tomatoes on top.
  5. ENJOY!
