Recipes I love: Simple & Delicious Pesto Pasta

Tuesday, August 16, 2011
I love my pasta.
Pasta salad might be my favorite food ever.
This recipe is so simple you'll probably laugh at me, but trust me friends simplicity can be so tastey.

Pesto Tortellini Salad
1 package cheese tortellini
2 T. Favorite Pesto
2 T. Light Italian Salad Dressing
1/4 c. Fresh Parmesan
[ I never measure when I make things unless it's baking but I'm pretty sure that these are close to the right amounts... haha.]

1. Cook tortellini pasta according to to the directions on the package.
2. After pasta is drained mix in your pesto & italian dressing while pasta is still hot. { Sometimes I put less and sometimes I put more... basil pesto has a strong flavor so less is better if you're not sure you like it }
3. Cover pasta, put in fridge to cool for 30-60 minutes.
4. Add  parmesan cheese to cooled pasta.
5. Eat it all up.
