On my Grandpa’s 80th Birthday my Aunt made some pasta salad with tortellini in it and it was so good! I decided to give it a try with my own version. Along with the pasta is some special dressing from Maria who blogs at Two Peas and Their Pod. It just puts the whole thing together!
Tortellini Pasta Salad:
1 orange bell pepper, cut into small pieces
1 yellow bell pepper, cut into small pieces
½ red onion, very thinly sliced
1 large cucumber, cut into bite size pieces
1 cup of cherry tomatoes, halved
½ cup sliced olives
1 cup of chopped artichokes
4 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
1 (19 ounce) package tortellini
¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
5 Tablespoons red wine vinegar
½ teaspoon dried oregano
½ teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon granulated sugar
Boil a large pot of water and cook the tortellini according to the directions on the package. Once it is done cooking, drain and dump it into a large bowl.
Add all of your veggies and cheese on top of your noodles. Mix well.
In a container with a lid, add salad dressing ingredients and shake until it is combined. Pour dressing over salad and mix until dressing is mixed together with the salad.
Serve and enjoy.
(For a quick Pasta Salad, add your favorite kind of Italian Dressing instead of making your own)
