Tortellini Pasta Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing [Recipe]

For my baby shower, my mom used a similar version of this recipe and made tortellini skewers. I eliminated the skewer step, changed a few ingredients and added a few for personal taste. Enjoy!

    1 package of frozen cheese tortellini

  • 1 small carton of grape tomatoes
  • 1 can olives (Use whatever olives you prefer. You can use pitted Greek olives or black olives. I chose a buttery green olive in sea salt water.)
  • 1 package of fresh, soft mozzarella cheese, cut into small chunks (low moisture will not be as good!)
  • 2 tspb capers
  • 10-15 fresh basil leaves, torn into quarters (optional)
  • 1/2-3/4 cup Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing (recipe below)

Place tortellini, tomatoes, olives, cheese, capers and basil in a large bowl. Gently toss with balsamic vinaigrette. Set for 1 hour, chilled. Serve

Balsamic Vinaigrette

  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 large cloves garlic (pressed or chopped)
  • 1 tbsp fresh finely chopped parsley
  • salt/pepper

Combine all ingredients. Mix thoroughly, set 10 mins before tossing with salad.
