"This is an excellent pasta salad that is great to make for the week ahead or to bring to potlucks! Make it -- you won't be disappointed. You may frown at the coleslaw dressing, but trust me, it's amazing in this recipe! This recipe is highly requested when served."

Directions

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Cook the tortellini according to the package directions, drain, rinse with cold water, and refrigerate until cool, about 30 minutes.
  2. Place the bacon in a large, deep skillet, and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on a paper towel-lined plate. Chop the bacon into 1/2-inch pieces while still a little warm.
  3. Place the tortellini, bacon, broccoli, grape tomatoes, and green onions into a salad bowl. Pour the dressing over the ingredients, and toss lightly to coat. Chill in refrigerator before serving.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes
  • You can use whole wheat three cheese tortellini, which can usually be found in the refrigerated section of the store, low sodium bacon or turkey bacon, and light coleslaw dressing.
  • I suggest starting to cook the tortellini before you start chopping your veggies, since it takes the longest to cool, and then placing it in the refrigerator until you are done with everything else.
