Tortellini Salad Recipe
2 bags of frozen tortellini
1/2 English cucumber, cut into bit size pieces
4 ounces of pepperoni, cut into quarters
1 1/2 cups of ranch dressing
Cook the tortellini according to the package. Drain and run cold water over to help the cooling process.
In a large bowl, mix your cooled tortellini, cucumber, pepperoni and ranch dressing. Depending on how much dressing the pasta absorbs, you might want to add more upon serving. Use your own judgment and preference when adding the dressing.
1) This is definitely a party sized portion. You can make this with only one bag of tortellini and then can cut back on the cucumber, pepperoni and dressing.
2) If you don’t have English cucumber, then use a regular one. Just make sure to peel it and remove the seeds during preparation.
3) Feel free to add any of your favorite vegetables; tomato, pepper, snap peas, etc.
