Tortellini Salad

Thankfully, this year for Thanksgiving, all I have to make is a salad!!  Yay!!!  So I decided a pasta salad with lots of veggies sounded good!  I remembered the salad cookbook from our church and located this yummy recipe.  I made only a few minor changes.  It does take a little time to prepare the veggies, but this is fairly simple to put together!!!

 Doesn't this look yummy????  MMMMM!

 Here's what you'll need!!  Omit what you don't like and add another veggie that's more appealing to you.  Next time, I will be trying this one with artichokes!!  Yum!

 Prepare all your veggies!  I sliced my mushrooms and chopped the broccoli into small pieces.  You may even wish to slice the tomatoes in half if they are too large.  Once that is done, prepare your tortellinis according to package directions.  Drain and rinse. 

Toss tortellini into veggie mixture and add dressing and parmesan cheese!

1 bunch of broccoli- florets only

Prepare (slice/chop) veggies and add to large bowl.  Cook tortellini according to package directions.  Drain and rinse.  Add to veggie mixture.  Add Italian dressing and Parmesan cheese.  Toss well to coat and refrigerator for several hours or overnight.
