Tortellini Salad

Original recipe is over here.



20-oz package of refrigerated cheese tortellini

1 cup fresh mozzarella, cubed

1 cup pepperoni, chopped

1 cup cherry tomatoes cut in half

1/3 cup fresh basil, chopped

2/3 cup Caesar salad dressing

Salt and pepper to taste



Cook tortellini according to package directions.  Drain and rinse with cold water and drain again.

Transfer cooked tortellini to a large bowl and add remaining ingredients.  Toss well.

Refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving



I made this several months ago during the week before my dance show.  We had rehearsals every day and I wanted something a bit lighter for dinners.  I thought this was amazing. Very easy and light but still filling.  My fiancé (Boyfriend is now fiancé btw! Very exciting times for us ahead!!) didn’t think it was filling but agreed about the tasty.  Maybe served with a bread or a meat dish he’d find it more filling – things to consider for next time.
