Summer Recipes: Tortellini Pasta Salad

Since it is hot outside the last thing that I want to do is slave over a hot stove. I love making pasta salads in the summer.

I tried something new from my normal Pasta Salad and used tortellini pasta. YUUMMMERRs. It was so filling and easy to make. I used refrigerated cheese tortellini and added in tomatoes, cucumbers, kalamata olives, red onion, artichoke hearts and feta cheese. I tossed it was a simple dressing of olive oil, grated garlic, rice wine vinegar, oregano and a my little secret McCormick salad supreme seasoning (Love this stuff)

 

We ate some as soon as I made it and it was a hit with some grilled chicken. Then I brought the salad the next day for lunch and added some pepperoni. You can serve the salad right away or chilled.
