This week I’m sharing one of my so simple it doesn’t even need a recipe, recipes. I make pasta salads when I need an easy lunch or a quick dish to bring to a party. Usually I just hunt through the fridge to see what veggies I have, toss with some cooked pasta, cheese, and a vinaigrette dressing.

When I want to make it a little fancier I use tortellini, instead of just a regular pasta. This dish is great for a BBQ because it gives the vegetarians a filling choice. You may want to double the recipe if you are expecting a lot of people. There is something about the tortellini that makes everyone go crazy for this.
