    This is a great pasta salad with cheese tortellini and sweet basil. Plan ahead, because it should chill for a couple hours to allow flavors to blend.

      This recipe was a hit at the BBQ I attended this weekend. I loved how easy it was, and the flavor was great. I was told that this was what I was "allowed" to bring to the next BBQ. I shaved, then roughly chopped, the carrots instead of slicing them just because I think they're easier to eat that way. I also used a bit more cheese and pepper than called for. I used regualr balsamic vinegar this time around, but next time I make it, I'm going to try white balsamic so the dressing won't look quite so dark. Thanks Karen, for a great summertime recipe!
