Summer Tortellini Pasta Salad
Another fun way to serve the pan fried tortellini: Place them onto skewers! Pan fried tortellini, tomatoes, cucumbers, fresh basil and salami. I also served the skewers with toasted bread, olives and a homemade pesto. Delicious!
- 1 package Five Cheese Tortellini
- 1 to 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 1 to 2 fresh garlic cloves minced
- 2 cups assortment cherry tomatoes
- salt and pepper
- cooked corn
- toasted pine nuts
Cook Five Cheese Tortellini according to package instructions but only for 3 minutes. Drain and set aside. Using a skillet over medium high heat, heat the olive oil, garlic and add in the cherry tomatoes. After a minute or two, season with salt and pepper and continue to cook the tomatoes until they begin to burst.
Add in the Five Cheese Tortellini and cook, stirring occasionally so the tortellini doesn't stick to the pan. Add in the cooked corn and stir to incorporate. After a few minutes, remove from the heat.
Garnish with some pesto and sprinkle on some toasted pine nuts and enjoy!
