    A family favorite around our house! I typically serve this along with any meat that was grilled. It's requested over and over by my kids, and I always get requests for the recipe when others join us for dinner! Enjoy!

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Boil your frozen tortellini in salted water until they pop up to the surface or until desired doneness.
    2. 2
      Drain pasta and rinse in cold water, allow to drain again.
    3. 3
      Add all veggies.
    4. 4
      Top with ranch salad dressing (I use Hidden Valley Lite) and mix well. I don't list an amount here, just keep adding until everything is well coated!
    5. 5
      As for the cheddar cheese, sometimes I add it in, sometimes I don't -- depends on the mood of the day! It's delicious either way!
    6. 6
      This can be served immediately, chilled for an hour or so, or even made a day in advance. If you're making it a day or so ahead of time, be sure to either add extra ranch dressing when making it or have more on hand when serving as the tortellini really soaks it up in the fridge! Enjoy!

      Nice, easy to make meal. I made my own ranch and scaled this down for 2 (except for the celery, green onions and red pepper - we like lots of veggies).

      Nice pasta salad! I made this over the weekend when I had 3 grand kids here. It was a real hit. I used some cheese tortellini and tried to sneak in some spinach tortellini as well. Very simple and good. Thanks for sharing. Made for Best of 2013 Tag.

      Quick, colorful dish for a large group. I also enjoyed having the leftovers over mixed greens in my lunchbox. I recommend using a whole red pepper and light buffalo ranch dressing.
