Don't you love tortellini drenched in a rich, buttery alfredo sauce? Yeah, me too. But tonight, I wanted to enjoy tortellini in a way that was a little less, well... rich and buttery.
This salad lets the beloved tortellini share the spotlight with fresh veggies. It can be made ahead and refrigerated overnight or served at room temperature. Yum!
