This recipe came about when I was searching for something to make for dinner one night. I used items already in my cupboard and refrigerator. Refrigerate if not served immediately.

DELICIOUS! I used a 16oz. bag of frozen tortellini cooked according to the pkg. I have to admit that I pretty much eyeballed everything (did not use any extra artichoke liquid as I felt it didn't need it) but all of the flavors together were wonderful. I served this cold and it was a huge hit at dinner tonight...a definite keeper YUM! Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

I wasn't quite sure about the pimento peppers - I assumed that meant one of those little jars; 3 oz = 3 Tblsp. They kind of got lost in the salad. I thought the salad needed something crunchy - I tried sliced carrots the second time I made this and they really helped. In the end, I the dressing just didn't do much for me... Read More

This was delicious! I dropped half of my tortellini on the floor and added small pasta to make up the difference and it still came out spectacular. I also added grape tomatoes. I am a fan of artichokes but my husband is not and he loved it too (even with extra artichoke liquid!) A keeper in my book. Read More

Fantastic. I had dry tortellini and cooked those up and I also added black olives and pickles instead of pimentos. Also added grated radishes and carrots from my garden. This salad is wonderful and I cant wait to serve at a picnic tomorrow. I'm sure it will bring out more flavors as it sits overnight. A keeper. Read More

This was really good! A super easy fix for when you want to make lunch a little different from the usual pasta and marinara sauce. Instead of pimento peppers - which we didn't have in the house - I used roasted red peppers which were delicious! Next time I will add less mayonnaise to make it a little lighter. Read More
