The original recipe I found called for a 20 oz package of refrigerated cheese tortellini. I found Giovanni Rana's 12 oz package that you only cook the pasta 3 minutes - that means it's fresh pasta, not dried like the packages that direct you to cook it 8-9 minutes. Made a big difference as the tortellinis are bigger and, in my opinion, tastier.
1Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Throw in a pinch of salt. Cook tortellini according to the package directions. Drain the tortellini and rinse with cool water.
2Place the tortellini in a large bowl. Add the tomatoes, cucumber, olives, red onion, and feta cheese.
3In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, garlic, and seasonings. Pour the dressing over the salad and toss until salad is well coated. Serve immediately or place in the refrigerator. Will keep up to 3 days.
