recipe // ranch tortelloni salad

This is a quick and easy pasta salad recipe that I whipped up for Thanksgiving. Most of the ingredients were things I already had in my pantry and it's got a lot of flavor! I altered a pasta salad recipe I'd tasted at work and this was the result! I don't tend to measure accurately when I cook, so it's a lot of guesswork and working to your own tastes, but this is the gist!
1 family size package of tortelloni or tortellini
1 packet of ranch dressing seasoning
1 package of cherry tomatoes, cut into quarters
3 tablespoons of olive oil
Large spoonful of mayo
Handful of shredded parmesan cheese
Splashes of red wine vinegar and lemon juice
Parsley, to taste
Black pepper, to taste
Cook the tortelloni as the package suggests, then drain the water and toss the pasta with some olive oil so it doesn't stick to itself. I then spread mine on a cookie sheet and put it in the fridge to cool completely.

Once it was cool, I put it in a bowl and added the spoonful of mayo and mixed it all together. I added the ranch in stages - some seasoning, stir, more seasoning - until the package was empty. I didn't want it clumping into the crevices of the pasta. At this point I stirred in the parsley and black pepper, too.

I added the tomatoes next, along with the red wine vinegar and lemon juice. Use these sparingly at first - it's mainly to cut the salt of the seasoning packet! You can always add more to taste later.

The parmesan was the last thing I added, sprinkling it in and stirring for adequate distribution.

Store it in the fridge and enjoy!

This is super easy to customize - you can add cucumber, olives, different cheese, more spices, anything you want!
