This is one of my standard pasta salads for potlucks or parties. It's vegetarian and so good! Don't skimp with the dressing because the tortellini soak up a lot of dressing. I estimated the dressing amounts, so you just need to taste for yourself.

9.2.20 I would suggest that you follow the cooking directions on the tortellini package. Mine said 2 minutes, and I could see some of the tortellini already uncurling at about 1-1/2 minutes, so I took them off the heat (8-10 minutes would have destroyed this particular brand). Also, once they’re drained and you’re waiting for them to cool, they’re starting to stick together. The next step should be adding the dressing and giving them a good stir, to separate and then add all of the veggies. There simply was not enough dressing, so I will increase that amount in the future, otherwise, the salad will be a bit on the dry side. This really was super simple to make and tasted pretty good. Thanks for sharing your recipe. Read More
