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