“Fresh herbs and lemon juice give this cheese tortellini the refreshing flavor of summer. It is a wonderful dish for picnics. Ideas for variations: garbanzo beans, green peas, grated carrots, and/or broccoli flowerets.” - by OTUS.FLA

I doubled the herbs & veggies (I used red onion and a mix of red, orange, green, & yellow peppers - very pretty!). I also added some ceyenne pepper. I used white wine vinegar, and only 1/2 the amount of both the vinegar and olive oil. This was plenty of dressing - still a lot of flavor without being greasy. I think this makes many more servings than the recipe states unless it is all you are eating, so even 1/2 a batch might be enough for a smaller gathering."
