Tortellini Salad

Tortellini Pasta Salad

Our family is constantly looking for yummy side dishes that we can add to our meals. Today, I’m sharing one of my personal favorites that we recently found. I’m all about simple these days and this recipe is just that! Being simple, doesn’t have to mean simple taste though. This Spinach and Tortellini Pasta Salad has few ingredients but is bursting with yummy flavor. Its quick and easy to put together and can be served immediately. The recipe called for

  • chopped spinach,
  • olives
  • Parmesan cheese
  • cherry tomatoes

We loved the combination of flavors, but next time may add:

  • peppers
  • cucumbers
  • mini pepperonis

With it being so simple and tasty, we know we’ll be making this a ton during the summer for BBQs, potlucks and holiday get togethers. The Italian dressing was so simple but was the perfect flavor for this pasta salad.

As mentioned above, the ingredients in this salad gave it so much flavor! We may add a few more ingredients next time but may also use fresh spinach instead. We also would love to try a Greek version next time with Greek dressing and the following ingredients:

  • Cheese tortellini
  • tomatoes
  • spinach
  • olives
  • Feta cheese (instead of Parmesan)
  • cucumbers
  • pepperoncinis

We think it would be amazing!! We really do hope you enjoy this recipe and can use it for upcoming occasions. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Made this tonight it turned out wonderful thank you for sharing. I did change the dressing just because I didn’t have Italian dressing. I used an olive oil dressing it worked great.

      Lil' Luna

      Sounds perfect!! I’m glad you liked it! Thanks so much!

    Michelle

    We do this with bottled Asian sesame dressing and add crunchy rice noodles and lots of fresh spinach. Love your Italian version, which makes more sense with the tortellini- LOL! I Can’t wait to try your version – yum!

      Oh, it’s great!! Thank you for sharing great recipes!

    Ali

    This might be a dumb question but for the frozen spinach, you don’t cook it at all right? Just leave it out to thaw?

    Coletta

    Is it really one 9oz bag of tortellini? Iโ€™ve only been able to find 19oz bags?

    Sheila

    Wow! This is the best tortellini salad I have ever tried. Thank you so much for sharing the recipe. Recommending this everyone.
