Reviews for Mediterranean Tortellini Salad
"The flavors in this recipe are very tasty. I also used black olives and our favorite Hillshire farm smoked sausage. Since it's gotten cold here I wanted a hot dish for supper. So I added chicken broth and saved the pesto and feta to spoon onto each bowl. This is definitely an 'all-season' keeper. I will make it as a salad to be a side to grilled meats next summer!"
"I just made this for supper last night and my whole family loved it! I substituted chicken/apple sausage for the turkey sausage as my family loves that kind. I could not find Greek olives so I substituted black olives, sliced. I would def. make this one again!"
"Very tasty.Followed the recipe exactly & got many compliments."
