Tortellini Salad

 I made this for my family and they devoured the entire bowl.  The pesto enhances the flavor of the tortellini while the mozzarella makes it extra special.

1lb Tortellini
½ Cup Pesto
¼ Cup Walnuts – chopped
4-5 Sundried Tomatoes
1 Can Black olives – sliced
2 tsp Salt
1 tsp Pepper
1 TBSP Fresh Basil – Chopped
2 Basil Leaves for garnish
1 Pint Cherry or Grape Tomatoes
1LB Mozzarella – Cubed



In a medium saucepan, cook the tortellini following the package directions.  Drain.  Add ½ the pesto while the tortellini is hot and stir to combine.  Once the pasta is cool, add the mozzarella, olives, cherry tomatoes, sundried tomatoes, walnuts, salt and pepper.  Add the remaining pesto and the chopped basil.  Gently mix.  Before serving, garnish with chiffonade cut basil.
