  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook tortellini in the boiling water until they float to the top, 5 to 7 minutes. Drain water. Place in the refrigerator to cool, about 15 minutes.
  2. Layer pesto, cucumbers, tomatoes, onions, tortellini, and mache into the canning jar; season with salt and pepper.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Romaine lettuce can be substituted for the mache.
  • The tortellini can be made ahead of time.
  • Ideally the heartier and heavier ingredients are layered on the bottom and the more delicate lighter ingredients are on the top.

All the ingredients are very good for a pasta salad. It tasted great but I had to take everything out of the jar to mix up! Good recipe.
