Confetti Tortellini Salad

Total Time

Prep: 15 min. Cook: 10 min.


6 servings

After sampling a similar pasta salad at a market in Florida, I came home to develop my own version. This recipe is as close to the original as anything I've ever tried.


  • 1-1/2 cups refrigerated or frozen cheese tortellini
  • 1 cup fresh cauliflowerets
  • 1 cup fresh broccoli florets
  • 2 medium carrots, cut into 1/4-inch slices
  • 2 tablespoons thinly sliced green onions
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup Italian salad dressing
  • 1/4 teaspoon hot pepper sauce


  1. Ina large saucepan, cook tortellini according to package directions; drain. In a large bowl, combine the tortellini, vegetables and garlic. Sprinkle with cheese. Combine the salad dressing and hot pepper sauce; pour over salad and toss gently. Cover and refrigerate until serving.
