Lemon Tortellini Salad
This is an excellent pasta salad with a lemony tang. Serve it as a main dish or a side.
- In a small bowl, mix the lemon juice and Dijon mustard. Add the olive oil and whisk well to emulsify.
- Add capers, garlic, lemon zest, salt and pepper. Mix well.
- Add chopped peppers and tomatoes to cooked pasta. Pour dressing over pasta and toss gently to mix.
- Serve warm or cold. Individual servings may be topped with parmesan cheese.
- Makes about 8 servings.
Note: If using a 1-pound package of fresh tortellini, you may slightly reduce the remaining ingredients proportionately, but only slightly.
