Both Scouts and my church love to have potlucks around the holidays. The food is always amazing there, and I sometimes go home with new recipes, if I’m lucky.
The challenge, for me anyway, is what to bring. I’m not a huge fan of wrestling a crockpot or a chafing dish into my car, so my plan is usually to go with something more portable that wouldn’t have to be kept warm.
Pasta salad is perfect.
It’s also a little bit healthier than some of the recipes I’ve featured lately. :) You’re still getting your carbs in, of course, (I’m a firm believer in carbs!), but you can put in a lower-fat dressing or cheese and that would help even further.
Cheese Tortellini Pasta Salad
1 can quartered artichoke hearts
2 cups halved cherry tomatoes
1/2 cup green onions
1/4 cup sliced black olives
3/4 cup red onion
19 oz. uncooked cheese-stuffed tortellini (I used frozen)
2 oz. chopped salami
1 cup Caesar salad croutons
8 oz. shredded Parmesan cheese
1 cup Caesar salad dressing
1/2 t pepper
Romaine lettuce to serve on
Cook frozen tortellini according to package directions and let cool.
Combine all the ingredients and chill. Serve on Romaine lettuce.
Yes, it’s another quick and easy recipe! And this one is actually pretty. :)
