Greek Tortellini Salad

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.
