I think there are as many pasta salad recipes as there are people. Here is one that I really like. It is one of the few pasta recipes that I have seen that has soy sauce, which gives a great flavor.

I love this salad dressing; you could use it on a tortellini salad, or as a dressing for a mixed vegetable salad.

So use your creativity to use part or all of this recipe.
