This is my Mom’s famous tortellini salad. Well, I say “famous” because in my family it is. She’s made this for pretty much every family gathering we’ve ever had. Partially because it’s easy & delicious and partially because my siblings and I demand it 😊. She’s made it so much that it’s expected and anticipated at every family event.
This tortellini salad goes great with just about anything but I particularly love it with lunch. I often make it as a side for sandwiches. It’s perfect!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 1lb Tri Colored Spiral pasta (cooked)
- 1lb Cheese Tortellini (cooked)
- 1 chopped Red Bell Pepper
- 1 chopped Red Onion
- 1 jar of pitted Kalamata Olives
- 1 crumbled block of fresh Feta Cheese
- 16 Oz bottle of Robusto Italian Dressing
💥Mix everything together in a big bowl except for the feta and the olives. Chill over night. Add the feta and olives right before serving and give them a nice mix.
How’s that for easy? Can’t beat this stuff served next to a nice big Italian combo! I just want to mention:
🥗 You have to get the fresh feta. The kind that’s in a big cube with a little water. Break that up and add it. Don’t try to cut a corner and get the already crumbed cheese. I’ve tried it and it’s not the same. The fresh stuff is the best!
🥗 I say to add the olives when you’re ready to serve because sometimes it can stain the pasta being next it all night. No big deal, but if you’re serving it to a crowd it might turn someone off seeing black spots. They might not put two and two together and think the pasta is bad or something.
This is directly from my family to yours. I hope you give this one a try!
