We used to buy this salad in the deli of a local grocery store. This is just as good and much more economical! Cook time includes chilling time.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Prepare pesto mix according to package directions. Do this first so the pesto will cool while the pasta is cooking.
  2. Prepare frozen tortellini according to package directions.
  3. Mix prepared pesto and tortellini together. Chill for 1/2 hour.
  4. Add mayonnaise, parmesan and pine nuts.
  5. Mix well and chill at least 2 hours or overnight. It's really best when made a day ahead.

This was delicious. I used ham and cheese tortellini, but otherwise did everything as recipe requested. It turned out fantastic! We really loved this! Thanks!
