TORTELLINI CAESAR SALADFrom linspj 8 years ago
- 1 (9-14 oz.) pkg. frozen cheese tortellini (I always use frozen cheese tortellini) shopping list
- 1/2 c. mayonnaise (I use low fat mayonnaise) shopping list
- 1/4 c. milk (I use low fat or fat free milk) shopping list
- 1/4 c. freshly grated parmesan cheese (or you can use the shredded Parmesan in the bag found in the dairy case-don't use the one in the can though-it's way too dry and salty) shopping list
- 2 Tbsp. lemon juice shopping list
- 1-2 cloves garlic, finely minced shopping list
- Freshly ground black pepper to taste (optional) shopping list
- 8 c. torn romaine lettuce shopping list
- 1/3 c. freshly grated parmesan cheese shopping list
- 1 c. seasoned croutons shopping list
- Halved grape or cherry tomatoes (optional-I use regular cut-up tomatoes when I don't have grape or cherry tomatoes-like in the salad in the picture) shopping list
How to make it
- Cook tortellini according to package directions.
