Tortellini Salad

We took this for a picnic lunch just yesterday. The tortellini and pesto makes it an interesting pasta salad.


7 oz. frozen cheese tortellini or (2 cups) dry, cooked and drained

1 small red sweet pepper, cut into thin bite sized strips

1 C. broccoli flowerets

1 small carrot, thinly sliced

1/3 C. sliced pimento stuffed olives or sliced ripe olives

3/4 C. mayonnaise

1/3 C. pesto sauce

1/4 C. milk

2 Tbs. Parmesan

1 tsp. white wine or cider vinegar

1/2 tsp. pepper

1 tsp. minced garlic

Combine first 5 ingredients. Mix dressing and toss with salad. Cover and chill at least 5 hours.
