Tortellini Pasta  Salad

This Tortellini Pasta Salad is made with cheesy tortellini pasta, flavorful prosciutto, roasted red peppers, juicy tomatoes, Italian dressing, and Parmesan.


Gather your Ingredients

– 350 grams cheese tortellini ¾ lb or about 3 cups – 3 slices prosciutto – ½ cup fresh chopped spinach – ¼ cup thinly sliced red onion – ¼ cup roasted red peppers jarred, chopped – 1 Roma tomato juices squeezed out and chopped – ½ cup good Italian salad dressing – 2 tablespoons mayonnaise – 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese grated


– Bake prosciutto on a parchment-lined baking sheet at 400 degrees F for 6-8 minutes, until dried and crisp (will continue to crisp slightly as it cools so don’t overcook). Allow to cool slightly and crumble.


Whisk together the salad dressing, mayonnaise, and Parmesan cheese.


– Place cooled tortellini, crumbled prosciutto, spinach, onion, roasted red peppers, and tomato in a large bowl.


Pour dressing over the salad. Toss to coat and serve or refrigerate until ready to serve.
