Friday Recipe: Spinach and Tortellini Salad

I'm not a big spinach eater, but it's incredibly healthy for you and so once in a while, I force myself. But I love tortellinis! And this salad is pretty good.

Prep Time:      Cook Time:        Ready In:
15 Min             15 Min                 30 Min


  • 1 (9 ounce) package cheese-filled tortellini
  • 1 (10 ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 (2 ounce) can sliced black olives
  • 1 (8 ounce) bottle Italian-style salad dressing


  1. In a large pot of salted boiling water, cook pasta until al dente, rinse under cold water and drain.
