My family has made this recipe for a long time. Not sure where my mom got it. It is very delicious and great for potlucks and barbecues.

I made quite a few substitutions but I thank you very much for the dressing and the idea. I used cilantro, carrots, edamame instead of artichokes, basil and parsley and tomatoes. I will be making this again and again. Thanks.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook tortellini according to package directions (I use the fresh tortellini that are tri-colored).
  2. Make sure to cut the broccoli into bite sized florets.
  3. I also lightly steam them before adding to the salad.
  4. In a large bowl mix together tortellini, broccoli, chopped parsley, pimento, UN-DRAINED artichoke hearts, green onions, basil and garlic powder.
  5. Add Italian dressing (I use Bernsteins Restaurant Recipe Italian or Newman's Own); stir to mix.
  6. Refrigerate until serving time.
  7. Just before serving, stir in olives, cherry tomatoes that have been cut in half, and parmesan cheese.
