I made this today for the first time to take to a family dinner and it was delicious! You know those times where you just aren’t sure? Well I knew this time because the bowl was empty when dinner was finished! Yessss!
10 oz. small or medium cheese tortellini pasta
1 (5 oz.) pkg mini pepperoni’s
1 cup cherry tomatoes (red and/or yellow) quartered
1 (3.8 oz.) can, black olives, drained
1/2 cup red onion, diced
1/2 cup jarred mild yellow banana peppers, chopped
1 cup Italian salad dressing
1 cup shredded parmesan cheese
pepper to taste
*Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and rinse with cold water. Let sit to cool.
*In a large mixing bowl, add the mini pepperoni, tomatoes, olives, red onion, and banana peppers. Toss with the cooled tortellini pasta. Add the dressing and cheese and toss all ingredients to coat. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving. Serve chilled.
*Store in an air tight container for up to 1 week.
****I also added rotini pasta to mine to give a variety of colors and shape. It was delicious!****
