Outstanding and very versatile recipe. I thought the cubed mozzarella was unnecessary, there's already plenty of cheese in this dish from the tortellini and parmesan. Try adding oil-packed sundried tomatoes too. Delish!
Can't believe I never got around to reviewing this. This has been my go-to base pasta salad recipe. I don't add extra olive oil, however. To me, that dilutes the flavor. I add some balsamic vinegar or some type of homemade vinegar-based dressing. And it always needs extra. :)
Mmmm! Great pasta salad! The family loved it! It was a great addition to our gathering! I added kalamata olives, some crumbled feta cheese and the juice of half a freshly squeezed lemon! Tasty! Thank you so much for sharing Wildflour.
I love this recipe, it's amazing. It makes a TON, so be prepared! I do not add the mozzarella or green pepper when I make it. I've tried it with pesto made from the Knorr Pesto powdered package, but it wasn't as good. Sticking with the glass jar of pesto from the pasta aisle! Thanks for posting this!
Amazing! My husband got a craving for some kind of pesto pasta dish and this was at the top of the list when I searched for it. He could not stop eating it and when he did, he could not stop talking about it. I know that I will be making this one over and over again.
So yummy! I added a 1/4 cup of balsamic vinegar and omitted the olives. Very, very easy to prepare! This is a keeper!
This is a delicious salad that you would buy from a fancy Itallian deli. I love the savory aspect and how all the ingredients marry together so well. Thanks for sharing this delicious recipe. I made this again and left out the mozzarella cheese. Still delicious five star food.
What a fabulous pasta salad. It is easy to make and tastes wonderful. This is going to be my standby pasta salad. I made it for Memorial Day and everyone went back for seconds and thirds. I liked it so much that I am thinking of adding chicken or shrimp to make it an entree. We truly loved it. Thank you for posting.
this was amazing. left out the rotini pasta and halved the vege ingredients. I halved the dressing at first but ended up adding in more olive oil and pesto. Sooo good!
Great recipe for a party or gathering- it is easy to put together, doesn't need to marinate for hours before serving, makes plenty and tastes good too! My family really liked this recipe. We will be making this one again!
