Italian Tortellini Pasta Salad

Pasta salad is always a summer staple! This Italian Tortellini Pasta Salad is one of my summer favs! Made with cheese stuffed tortellini, salami, chopped veggies, cheese, and a delicious homemade Italian dressing, you can't go wrong! It's great for a dinnertime side, entertaining a crowd, or taking to a party to share! Make it with me!

For this salad, you can do a homemade Italian dressing, which I include the recipe below, or use a bottle of Italian dressing. Whatever you prefer, or have time for will do! 

Italian Tortellini Pasta Salad
Yields 8 servings

1 (19-ounce) package frozen three cheese tortellini
2 slices deli salami, sliced small
1 cup broccoli, chopped small
1 cup diced bell peppers
1/4 cup sliced pepperoni, cut in half
1 cup cherry tomatoes
2 slices deli provolone cheese, cubed
1 cup black olives

1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon lemon juice

Cook tortellini according to package directions; drain, rinse, and drain again.

In a large bowl, combine tortellini, salami, broccoli, bell peppers, pepperoni, tomatoes, provolone cheese, and olives.

To Make Dressing:
To make the Red Wine Vinaigrette, in a small bowl, whisk together all vinaigrette ingredients. Pour over tortellini mixture and toss until evenly coated. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.

*Don't overcook tortellini! You don't want the noodles to become soggy and too soft. 
*If you want to do this semi homemade, you can use a bottle of Olive Garden or Zesty Italian Dressing instead of doing the homemade dressing!
