I had a package of tortellini I'd bought at a local pasta shop and wasn't quite sure what to do with it (I'd never made tortellini). We were having a cookout and the temperature outside was in the 90's so I knew I wanted to make a cold salad with an oil based dressing. I scavenged through my fridge for things I thought would compliment the tortellini and came up with this recipe. Enjoy!! (We sure did!)
