Summer Tortellini Salad

Central Iowa has been a stormy, wet mess this summer, and it seems all my tomatoes have come down with black speck. 😦 😦 😦 It’s tragically sad! Blessedly, I could salvage a few bites here and there and, combined with a few other summer produce items, dinner was fresh and tasty tonight!

  • Summer TortelliniPrepare 20 ounces of frozen cheese tortellini according to package directions.
  • Meanwhile, whisk…
    • 1/2 cup olive oil
    • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire
    • 2 T. crushed garlic
    • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • Combine cooked pasta and dressing with…
    • 2 cups of tomatoes, chopped
    • Kernels from 2 ears of corn
    • 1/2 cup green onions, sliced
    • 1/2 cup fresh basil, chopped
  • Serve with Parmesan cheese.

This dish was an excellent summer meal! I would absolutely consider taking this to a potluck; it was THAT good! I didn’t plant sweet corn, but I was excited to use my other garden items! It was delish at room temperature, but I think you could reheat in the microwave or serve cold.

  1. Simple yet apparently delicious!!! I’ve done similar stuff with my pasta. I don’t like the heavy sauces (especially the creamy ones) witnessed on many pasta dishes iin so-called Italian restaurants and especially diners in America.
