Tortellini Pasta Salad

Beth Pierce


Scrumptious Tortellini Pasta Salad is a quick and easy veggie filled flavor packed side that goes with all your grilled favorites. We love it with Dry Rub Grilled Pork Tenderloin and Marinated Herb Butter T Bone Steaks. This pasta salad holds up very well and can be made up to twenty four hours in advance of serving. But please hold the basil and about half the dressing until about twenty minutes prior to serving.
