MY REVIEW

"Would make again with the following changes that I used: I also added green and yellow peppers, black olives (regular and Italian oil cured olives), some red onion and a combination of olive oil and vinegar. Of course, I added more pasta."

"My family loves brocolli, especially my five year old grandaughter. . . she says it's her favorite food. Can't wait to try this! Sound great and looks beautiful."

MY REVIEW

"I don't understand why someone who hates broccoli would even bother to look at a recipe in which one of the main ingredients is broccoli!!! Go figure. If anyone can't find tortellini in their store (and I really can't understand why since it is in a lot of salad recipes) maybe mini ravioli would work in its place. I love the idea of using cheese cubes and turkey pepperoni in this. It would make it almost taste like antipasto salad. Yummy either way. I live in PA and can find tortellini in even the smallest stores, so I don't think it's a regional thing. It does come dried, fresh, or frozen in most every store. Hope you find it."
