Tortellini Primavera

  • 1 10 oz pkg Cheese Tortellini—cooked as directed
  • 2 each Plum Tomatoes—diced
  • 1/4 each Peppers, red, green and orange—diced
  • 1/2 bunch scallions—sliced
  • 1 stalk Broccoli florets—steamed and cooled
  • 1/2 each red onion—diced
  • 1 each carrot—shredded
  • 2 stalks celery—diced
  • 6 each radishes—sliced very thin
  • 1 cup snow peas—blanched
  • 1 cup Vinaigrette

Mix all well and allow an hour for flavors to combine.

Serving Ideas: Add cold seafood, or genoa salami dice.

Notes: Any cooked cooled pasta will do, but I like ones like shells or spirals that have places to hold the sauce. My son is particularly fond of cheese tortellini, so that's what I used here. Often you can get them in multicolors, which is fun for the eyes. In the summer, when there are a lot of peppers and eggplants and such, I mix a batch of cooked ratatouille into this too. It is really an ad-lib kind of thing, so don't go following this like it was graven in stone.
