Caprese Tortellini Salad

Caprese Tortellini Salad


1 (20 ounce) package refrigerated cheese tortellini
1 (7 ounce) package refrigerated basil pesto (If you want to make it yourself, see the pesto sauce recipe link below)
2 cups halved grape tomatoes
(8 ounce) fresh mozzarella, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
Fresh basil for garnish, if desired


Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over medium high heat. Add the tortellini and cook according to package directions.

Drain the pasta and rinse with cold water to stop the cooking process.

Transfer the pasta to a large bowl. Add the pesto, tomatoes and cheese. Toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes or up to 8 hours.

Serve chilled or at room temperature.
