    mandabears's Note:

    This is good as an appetizer, serve with toothpicks or as a very good pasta salad. I first tried this recipe for Stephanie's Bat Mitzvah.

      I used pre-made pesto & whole wheat tortellini. I tried a small bowl warm, and then refrigerated the rest. I took the cold leftovers as lunch with me the next day... it was so tasty and even better then! definitely a keeper, very versatile. thanks!

      A lifesaver! We hadn't been to the grocery store in a while and I was scrounging for something to make for dinner last night. I was delighted to find a tasty-looking recipe that had such staple ingredients. We substituted the spaghetti for tortellini (since that's what we had) and halved the oil. It was still a bit oily for my tastes. I might substitute some water for some of the oil next time. The taste, though, was absolutely fantastic!

      I loved it; this is definitely going to be a make-again recipe. I will change one thing though; I thought the 2/3 cup of olive oil was FAR too much. Please note however that I am not one for fatty foods. I will definitely make this with 1/2 cup next time, maybe even less. Thank you so much for the recipe, mandabears! =)
