"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."

"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."

"We loved this salad! Thank you for posting the recipe. Broccoli is the favorite vegetable in our family of five, and these flavors blended beautifully.

What an amazingly ridiculous, childish and inappropriate comment by phyllisturner. A few words of advice ... if you see broccoli in a recipe, click off that recipe immediately and look elsewhere. Sheesh, it's not rocket science; it's a recipe that others (like my family) may enjoy."

"Hi Velohic - the only time I see tri-color tortellini is in the dry pasta section, not frozen. It's decent quality if you follow the package directions. Hope that helps."
