“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.”

I love this recipe! This is my favorite pasta salad...EVER. My modifications are as follows: tri-colored tortellini!, red onion, garlic and herb feta, red wine vinegar, yellow bell pepper instead of green, double the hot sauce, juice of a whole lemon, fresh oregano, fresh thyme, fresh garlic, nix the mint, nix the olives.

I brought this to a Thanksgiving dinner, and not only was it a hit with requests for the recipe, but I was also asked to bring it again to a Christmas dinner. I did make some changes, just to suit my own tastes. I kept the pasta amount the same, using tri-color parmesan tortellini. 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.

Great salad, colorful too. I added more basil. I brought this to a potluck, and it was very popular.
