DIRECTIONS

  • Combine dressing ingredients (oil through black pepper) in a jar, shaking to combine (or whisk together in a small bowl).
  • Cook tortellini according to package directions, being sure not to overcook. Drain and transfer to a large serving bowl.
  • Stir the bell pepper, tomato and onion with the tortellini. Pour half of the dressing over and toss well.
  • Let marinate for at least 30 minutes, or up to 8 hours. (Cover and chill if longer than 1 hour. Bring to room temperature before serving.).
  • Just before serving, stir the spinach into the tortellini mixture. Pour on the remaining dressing and toss well. Sprinkle on the sesame seeds and toss again.
  • *Note: To toast sesame seeds, place in a small, dry skillet and toast over medium heat until they begin to pop and smoke slightly, about 3 minutes. Let cool. Be careful not to burn them!
