Tortellini, spinach and veggies are seasoned with bottled Italian dressing for a quick and zingy salad.

Ingredients

1
(9-oz.) pkg. refrigerated cheese-filled tortellini
1
medium yellow bell pepper, coarsely chopped (about 1 cup)
14
cherry tomatoes, cut in half
1/2
cup pitted kalamata olives
1
(10-oz.) pkg. prewashed fresh baby spinach (about 8 cups)
3/4
cup purchased Italian salad dressing
1
oz. (1/4 cup) shredded fresh Parmesan cheese

Directions

  • 1 Cook tortellini as directed on package. Drain. Rinse with cold water to cool; drain well.
  • 2 Meanwhile, in large serving bowl, combine bell pepper, tomatoes, olives and spinach.
  • 3 Add cooked tortellini to vegetable mixture. Pour dressing over salad; toss gently to coat. Sprinkle with cheese.
Tips  

Meat-filled tortellini can be used in place of the cheese-filled variety. Red or green bell pepper can be used instead of the yellow. One cup coarsely chopped tomatoes can also be used if you don’t have cherry tomatoes.

Cook the pasta the night before and toss with a teaspoon of oil. Store in a resealable plastic bag in the refrigerator until you’re ready to assemble the salad.
