This fresh, easy, and filling Tortellini Pasta Salad with Caprese flavors makes a quick vegetarian dinner or side dish!
This quick pasta salad was born for weeknight dinners or potlucks. You can enjoy this dish slightly warm or at room temperature. The pasta texture is best when served fresh instead of after it has been refrigerated.
You only need a few ingredients to make this guest-worthy caprese salad. I chose fresh mozzarella balls because it’s so easy to just toss them in the salad. If you’d prefer, you can get an 8-ounce ball of mozzarella and cut it into bite-sized cubes.
This warm pasta salad has enough protein from the pasta and cheese to serve as a vegetarian main dish. You could serve it on a bed of baby spinach or with some steamed asparagus on the side for a beautiful and healthy meal.
Pair your tortellini pasta salad with a crisp white wine or a sparkling Italian soda. Enjoy!
