How to make it

  • Cool the pasta completely after cooking, then pour over dressing and chopped peppers; mix all together.
  • Sprinkle top generously with parmesan cheese and cover bowl - refrigerate.
  • Just before serving, stir in the parmesan - serve over a bed of lettuce, if desired, or serve as is.
  • You can mix up the veggies any way you want for this, and you can try other cheeses, though I love parmesan with the ceasar dressing.
  • Try other dressing, too:
  • Greek version - to the cooked tortellini, add
  • 1 cup Greek dressing
  • 1 de-seeded cucumber
  • 3/4 cup diced, kalamata olives
  • 1/2 red onion, diced
  • 20 halved cherub tomatoes
  • 1 cup crumbled feta
  • Italian version - to the cooked tortellini, add
  • 1 cup Italian dressing
  • 1 cup sliced pepperoni or genoa salami chunks
  • 1/2 cup fresh grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup fresh pecorino romano cheese, and some
  • 1/2 sweet onion, diced
  • American version - to cooked tortellini, add
  • 1 cup Ranch dressing
  • 1 cup blue cheese crembles
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • Try whatever sounds good to you!! I want to try a caprese version with balsamic dressing and fresh basil and tomato chunks and mozzarella and some onion and garlic. There's so many "options" to make so many different tastes - all of them easy!!
