Caprese Tortellini Pasta Salad


  • 9 oz cheese tortellini (#1815)
  • 4 oz fresh mozzarella balls (marinated or regular)
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes
  • fresh basil, to taste

Italian Dressing:


  1. First, bring a medium pot of water to a boil. Add your tortellini and cook 3-5 minutes until desired tenderness, stirring frequently. 
  2. Then, strain/drain in a colander and run under cold water to halt the cooking process and prevent soggy noodles.
  3. Transfer into a medium-large serving bowl along with mozzarella balls, tomatoes, and basil.
  4. Next, make the dressing. Whisk all ingredients together and allow to sit. This will infuse all the flavors well.
  5. Pour in dressing and toss to coat.
  6. Dig in!
