Okay, I almost feel embarrassed to call this a tutorial. It is SO easy! And unfortunately I don’t have any pictures for you. It is so yummy though, I just have to share!
First get your ingredients.
~1 bag of tortellini (I got two bags that were about 15 oz and it made TONS. One should be enough unless you have a lot of people to feed.)
~A package of cherry tomatoes
~Package of Pesto Sauce (I love the McCormick powdered stuff. Super easy to mix up with some olive oil and water. But there are some great ones available pre-made.)
~1/4 cup Parmesan Cheese
1. Boil the tortellini according the package directions. Immediately put it on ice. I ran some cold water over it as well.
2. Chop the larger tomatoes in half. Not necessary but I liked the smaller chunks.
3. In a large bowl mix the chilled tortellini, tomatoes, and pesto. Add the Parmesan. Mix well.
And you are done! I chilled it overnight in my fridge. It was delicious! Everyone loved it. The best part is that it cost less than $5! Next time you have a potluck, I highly recommend trying it out.
