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!!!
Toss tortellini into veggie mixture and add dressing and parmesan cheese!
2 pkgs. cheese tortellini
1 can black olives
1 bunch of broccoli- florets only
1 small container grape tomatoes
6-8 oz. fresh mushrooms
red onion, chopped (I only used half)
3/4 c. grated Parmesan
Italian dressing (I used about 12 oz.)
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.
