Ingredients

  • 2 7 oz. boxes of DaVinci Multi-Color Tortellini
  • 8 oz. spicy salami
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 8 oz. mozzarella balls, quartered
  • 1/2 cup red onion, diced
  • 1/2 cup green bell pepper, diced
  • 1/2 cup black olives, sliced
  • 3/4 cup pepperoncini, sliced
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley

Homemade Italian Dressing

  • 1 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/3 cup red wine vinegar (can also use white wine vinegar or sub both)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 cloves fresh garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tbsp salt
  • 1/2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp dried parsley
  • 1/2 tsp cracked pepper

Instructions

  1. Cook your Davinci’s Multi-Color Tortellini according to package directions. Don’t forget to salt the pasta water!

  2. While it’s cooking, slice and dice the rest of the salad mix-ins! Set these aside. 

  3. Next, make the quick homemade Italian dressing! To a mason jar, add in all of the dressing ingredients. Cover with a lid and shake until it’s all combined. Taste and adjust seasoning if needed.

  4. Once the pasta is done cooking, drain it and add to a large bowl. Add the veggies, toppings and Italian dressing and toss thoroughly to combine. Taste and adjust seasoning if needed. Let cool in the refrigerator or eat immediately! Can be stored in the fridge for up to 4 days. Enjoy!
