Tuscan Tortellini Salad

This tortellini salad is loaded with classic flavors of Tuscany, including mozzarella, pepperoni, salami, olives, sun-dried tomatoes, and more. Better yet, it can be served warm or chilled!

Ingredients

  • 20 oz. tortellini
  • 1 cup fresh spinach
  • 3 oz. salami, sliced
  • 1 cup pepperoni
  • ¾ black olives, sliced.
  • 1 cup mozzarella pearls
  • ½ cup oil-packed sundried tomatoes, sliced
  • ½ cup Balsamic salad dressing, of choice
  • ¼ cup Parmesan cheese, grated.

Instructions

  • Cook tortellini according to package instructions, adding an extra minute doesn’t hurt. (I cooked my refrigerated tortellini for 5 minutes as opposed to 4.) Drain and pour into a large bowl. 
  • Immediately add the balsamic dressing to the warm pasta and use a silicone spatula to gently mix until well-combined. 
  • Add all remaining ingredients, mix until well-combined. Transfer to a clean bowl if desired. Serve immediately if serving warm.
    If serving chilled, refrigerate for 4+ hours. Before serving, you may choose to drizzle up to 1/4 cup additional salad dressing and toss before serving.

Notes

Giovanni Rana 5-Cheese Tortellini is my brand of choice.
