How To Make Tortellini Salad
Making this award-winning tortellini salad is so easy.
First, boil the cheese tortellini according the package directions. Usually, the tortellini will be fully cooked in 3-5 minutes. Let pasta cool for about 10 minutes or longer.
Once the noodles are cool to the touch, stir in Caesar dressing until all the noodles are coated. If you are making this summer salad in advance, keep them refrigerated until you are ready to assemble.
Carefully stir in tomatoes, spinach, and chopped olives. Add more dressing until your desired consistency.
Place the best pasta salad back into the refrigerator and chill until you are ready to serve.
What If I don't have time to chill the salad?
The salad will still be delicious, but the longer the cheese pasta salad can chill the better it will be.
We have still enjoyed eating it right after making it--it just tastes better cold!
