Recipe by Midwest Maven

This really is a deliciously different pasta salad that even the hard to please members of my family just loved. It has alot of great Mediterranean flavors going on in there, that blend together beautifully, for a salad I know you'll love too! **Cooking time is chilling time.**

Your description was right, I did love it. This is good stuff. The only thing I did differently was skip the salt, but that's just personal taste. Awesome job!

  1. In a hot non-stick skillet over medium/high heat saute the chopped prosciutto until in gets browned and crispy. (use a spray or two of cooking spray if it starts to stick at all).
  2. Set pan aside to cool while you make the dressing.

  4. Add the crispy bits of prosciutto, the cooked and cooled tortellini, mozzarella, green onions, cucumber, sundried tomatoes, and pimento, and mix well to coat.
  5. Don't worry if the dressing is a little thin right now, after chilling it with thicken slightly and cling to the salad better.
  6. Add any more salt and pepper to the finished salad now to taste, if you like.
