This food-network recipe was a great find so for shopping list of ingredients check out this link. I wanted to share my fist hand account to making it and after having party goers devour it last night, I can say this is a goodie.

Step 5

Cook the tortellini according to package instructions. Don’t over cook or contents will ooze out and you will have flat pasta discs

Step 6 - I used mozzarella container to mix pesto, olive oil, balsamic and little salt until it tasted like good dressing to my liking. Less dishes too.
