I tried a new pasta salad this summer. It's crazy easy, only five ingredients, and it can be eaten warm or cold. I liked it much better cold, but my picky son liked it better warm. And the fact that he liked it at all, was reason enough to share it with you--it must be good. :-)


1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
1/2 cup fresh basil leaves
1 (20-oz) bag of cheese tortellini
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2  cup Asiago peppercorn salad dressing


Bring water to a boil for the tortellini. Cook according to the directions on the package. While it's cooking, halve tomatoes and chop the basil leaves coarsely. Drain the pasta when ready.

Add the other ingredients...

...and toss!

That's it!

We probably got about six servings out of this bag. It would be really easy to double the recipe if you were feeding a bigger bunch. So glad my local Publix grocer was having a food demo. I picked up the recipe card and a new favorite was born.

Happy Tuesday...


  1. This recipe looks amazing, Kathryn. I plan to pick up the ingredients and try it this weekend--I have a feeling my husband will love it too! Thank you for sharing it! xo jane
