Pretty much every weekend means family time, a smoky grill, and fun foods around here.
Throw in a blue sky and some time in the pool and I'm a seriously happy lady!
I so look forward to cooking for the weekends. I know I keep saying it...but I love sides. That's where I have my fun when it comes to feeding people during the summer. I'm always on the lookout for fun new salads, and the other day I came across an interesting-sounding recipe for Tortellini Salad with Grilled Tomato Vinaigrette and knew I had to give it a try.
Honestly, until I made (and promptly fell in love with) the Broccoli and Tortellini Salad I wrote about last year it had never occurred to me to use tortellini in a pasta salad. I was definitely missing out, because it's fabulous. It makes for a heartier salad and you get the benefit of the flavor of the cheesy tortellini filling as well.
No going back. I find myself searching out tortellini salad recipes now!
