This is one of my favorite Pampered Chef recipes that is good served hot or cold. Often I make this when my husband is out of town and eat it for several dinners. I never tire of eating this salad. You can substitute pine nuts for the walnuts.

This was a really nice pasta salad! I used pine nuts instead of the walnuts (personal preference), and the tortellini was whole wheat, but everything else was as-written. I found it to be a teensy bit too mayonnaise-y for my tastes, but I only like mayo in small doses, so that's just me. I had some both warm and cold, and both were delicious. Thanks for posting! Made for PAC Fall 07.
