Pesto Tortellini

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by mandabears

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!
