Fantastic! I've made this a few times and it is always a big hit. I use baby spinach and I don't bother cooking it. I just toss it in. When the spinach is mixed in the salad, the dressing naturally wilts as if it were cooked. I would highly recommend doing it this way.


Fabulous pasta salad! It's simple and delicious! It's so easy to put together, yet tastes like something you'd find at a gourmet deli. I used fresh tortellini and fresh spinch vs. frozen. I also threw in some roasted red peppers along with the cherry tomatoes and olives. I used shredded Parmesan and for the dressing I chose "Nonna's Tuscan Salad Dressing" from this site. This recipe is a definite keeper!


This was a hit at our ladies luncheon! Very colorful; nice light, Italian taste. I used about 4-5 ounces of finely chopped fresh spinach, uncooked, a little more parmesan cheese than called for, a little more tortellini, and not nearly as much salad dressing (less than half of the 16 oz bottle). I used those little sweet 'grape' tomatoes and didn't cut them in half. It sat for a little bit (about an hour and a half) which I think was good. Let the tortellini soak up all the flavors. Thanks so much for this recipe - it's a keeper!
