Tortellini salad for busy days!

This is a very simple salad that my kids love. We toss it together on busy days! You can add the type of vegetables that you like.

Ingredients

One package cheese tortellini- refrigerated kind

1 can black olives, drained and sliced

1 Green Bell pepper,chopped

1 Red Bell pepper,chopped

Dressing

You can use your favorite bottle of Italian salad dressing or I use the following:

1/2 cup olive oil

1/4 cup vinegar

2 Tbs. sugar

1/4 tsp. basil

3 Tbs. fresh parsley chopped

1 clove garlic minced

1/2 tsp. salt

Directions

I like the fresh type of tortellini found in the refrigerated section of the grocery store.Cook tortellini according to package directions. Drain pasta. Do not over cook!

Add vegetables to cooked, drained pasta.

Mix dressing well.

Pour dressing over salad and mix. Sprinkle with 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese and mix. Refrigerate.

  7. Looks good, Lynn. Quick and easy. I think homemade dressing is easy and so much better tasting. And I have those herbs growing in my garden. Thanks for the recipe.

    So many of your recipes use such simple ingredients I can easily veganise them for myself without altering the overall yumminess of the recipe, I have a lot of them shortlisted for a try and this is on that list!

    • Thanks Melanie! Allot of Middle Eastern recipes recipes have veggies and less meat. My daughter in law in is vegetarian so I am always looking for things to make her! I am glad you can fit them into vegan!

    My youngest daughter insisted that tortellini were ‘tortoise-lini’ for years … the fact that she loved them then and still does now is therefore slightly un-nerving!

  18. I love your salad and will have to try it – the dressing sounds good. Sometimes I use those tortellinis in a marinara sauce.

  21. I like a meal with a maximum amount of ingredients in one plate. This just has all the vitamins minerals and nutrients that you need. It’s a winner, with gluten free substitutions.
