    Made Over And Over Again

    Karlynn from

    I have made this for so many parties. I believe that it could never get old. I have changed it through the times I have made it. I don't put the tomatoes in it because tomatoes don't keep very good. Also I have replaced the Tortellini with just some basic shell noodles. I like the taste better with the shells and shells are much cheaper

    Excellent Light Summer Salad

    Margie from Chandler, AZ from Chandler, AZ

    I made this for my granddaughters birthday party, did not use the tuna or chicken and used Zesty Italian Dressing, also added bacon crumbles and whole grape tomatoes. Let the tortellini, bacon bits and blanched broccoli marinate for a couple of hours in the fridge then just before serving added the italian salad and tomatoes. Everyone raved about it and my husband asked for it for lunch to take to work. Excellent recipe, you can be so creative with it. My husband doesn't like any type of pasta so thought he would hate it, was I wrong.

    Great

    Janine from Voorhees, NJ

    I made this last night for my family and it was a hit. I thought it was a bit overpowering with the Italian dressing. Next time I might try this with a balsamic vinegar and I was thinking about adding some crumbled feta. Overall though, this was a tasty and refreshing pasta salad. Perfect for bringing to a BBQ because it would be fine sitting outside because there is no mayo involved.

    I made this salad yesterday for a work potluck. I was an intant hit! I like to use a bit of color in my cooking, so I used tri-color tortellini and an orange bell pepper. I am not the biggest fan with raw brocolli, so I decided to blanch the vegetables. I found it to be prefect! I will definitely make this one again. Simple and delicious!

    Wonderful Salad...

    Angela from Greensboro, NC

    This is an absolutely wonderful salad which can be served as an accompaniment to meal or as a meal in itself. I served it to dinner guests and to my family as an accompaniment to an Italian meal. It adds so much to the table because it is very colorful and different ( a "no-lettuce" salad). Would be excellent for luncheons, parties, etc.

    Excellent

    Julia from Antelope,CA

    I read the recipe at work and on the way home decided to buy all the ingredients and make it for dinner. My husband was a little concerned because he says he doesn't like olives (even asked me not to put olives in the salad, but I did anyway) we both ate it and he went for seconds. The salad tasted great (i also added chicken strips) and decided I am making this salad for my Christmas family gathering this year.

    This was so easy and delicious

    carol from fEDERAL wAY, wa

    I cut the recipe is half and it was fantastic. I still had leftovers since there is only two of us at home. I took the rest into work the next day and everyone loved it. I added chicken to it. I will make this again and again. A great recipe to take for a potluck. It tastes even better the next day.

  •  Star(s)

    Fantastic!

    BW from Virginia

    I cut the recipe in half (but still added the whole can of ripe olives). It was fantastic. I served it with hot garlic bread and it was a big hit with my friends. You could add some diced ham or pepperoni to it and make it extra yummy; but it was really good as is. I'm taking it to my next potluck luncheon!

    Very Good

    Lora from Victoria, BC

    I used a roasted red pepper and garlic Italian dressing and it tasted great! Also, because my ravioli had unknowingly expired the first time I made this recipe, I just used some rotini pasta I had on hand and cut up cheddar cheese cubes and it still turned out great. A very easy and versatile salad.

    Easy but so so

    J.O. from NC

    This pasta salad is so easy to make but it's a little...I don't know. Not one of the best pasta salads I've ever had. I guess by changing the dressing and/or the tortellini it would make it better. It might also be good with some more protein (chicken, tuna, tofu, etc).

    Disappointed

    Sabrina Bowditch from COLUMBUS, OH

    Sorry to say I was disappointed. After reading the reviews on this recipe, I decided to make it. I followed the recipe as written. I was shocked to see how awful and strong the creamy mustard sauce tasted when I sampeled it with a bite of pork loin. I'm not picky at all, but I'm glad I tried a bite before I put all the pork loin back into the sauce. I even attempted to put additonal evaporated milk to see if that would help but it was still awful. I do like mustard so that has nothing to do with it. I poured the sauce down the drain and came up with my own sauce then. When starting with pan dripping again, I added 1 tsp. of flour, I replaced the evaporated milk with 98% fat free chicken broth, left out the mustard, still put the green onions in as before. Let it thicken up some and put the pork loins back into it, then simmer a couple minutes. It was great. Will make it my way again.

    Fabulous and creamy

    jacqueline regulski from tobyhanna, pa

    I made this recipe tonight and it was delicious. I guess something in the evaporated milk made the pork very tender. I used fat free evaporated milk to cut down on the fat and very lean pork sliced thin. I also used just a regular onion chopped thinly and sauteed that with about a heaping tablespoon of minced garlic. This recipe is definately a keeper for this household.

    Christmas Stars

    theresa spohrer from Apalachicola, FL

    I found this recipe in a magazine back in the 90's,it called for cutting the tomato bottoms off in the shape of stars which you bake beside the stuffed ones,since it's red and green it's perfect for Christmas! My son is having everyone over for dinner this year and sure enough Christmas Stars is my dish assignmet! I'm going to try all the tips. Thank-You Stouffer's fans!

    Simple and tasty

    Tony Jurcak from Joliet, IL.

    Here is a great tip. I used a muffin tin to cook stuffed tomatoes it holds them in place and you don't have to worry about them falling over. Like all the other reviews it was an excellent dish and will make again.

    Fancy tomatoes

    PJ Janowitz from Hialeah, FL

    I have used this recipe to dress up a plain and simple dinner, as well as to embellish a fancy one. They are delicious, especially when tomatoes in the market are less than tasty. I agree, you need to lightly salt the inside of the tomatoes, then turn them upside down to drain out some of the liquid. Not only delicious but pretty as well.

    SOOO YUMMY.

    melissa from new york, ny

    These are SO good. Just make sure you sprinkle some salt on the tomatoes to dry them out before stuffing them, or else it gets a little runny. I make a ton of these and snack on them throughout the week.

    EXTREME SATISFACTION

    All my favorite tastes in one dish, will make this again and again.

    Try This..IT's even better!

    Amanda Helton from Birmingham, AL

    Cook the spinach and the cheese together in a small bowl or casserole dish before filling the tomatoes. The after stuffing sprinkle a little cheese on top. It is a lot tastier and the tomatoes don't fall apart when trying to pick them up and eat them.

    Excellent

    caron brady from levittown, new york

    I have made these over a dozen times since first trying them. They are wonderful. Definately add parmesan to the mixture before filling the tomatoes. Bon Appetit.

    Easy

    Lisa from Winchendon MA

    I made these last night. My husband thought they were very good. I did add a little more cheese into the mixture, also I added some bacon bits. This gave it a bit of texture and more flavor. I'll be making these again.

    Great Side Dish

    Jennifer from San Antonio, TX

    I made these for a side dish at Thanksgiving. They were great. Everybody loved them. I had so many compliments on the stuffed tomatoes. All of my family was happy to see something different as a side dish. I will be making these again, since they are so easy to make.

    Great Prensentation

    Nancy from Minneapolis

    These would work well with anything. I served these with a brown rice pilaf and some grilled halibut. It really did add some nice colour to the plate. It was a nice change to a dinner salad. I took the advice of the last review and mixed some extra parmesan cheese through the spinach before I spooned the mixture into the tomatoes. I actually think you could doctor these up even more if you wanted before filling the tomatoes. The only thing you have to be careful of is leaving them in too long as they will start to fall as the tomatoe softens up. I had one colapse because it was in a little too long. It didn't ruin the taste though...they were wonderful. I will definately be making these again!!

    Gimme More!!!!!!!

    Christi W from

    This side dish was soooooooooo good, I had to go back for more. I only used 4 tomatoes to one pkg. of spinach souffle, and topped it with fresh parm cheese. Next time though, I will mix some extra parmesan into the spinach, and on top. This one is a keeper.

      Delicious lemony flavor

      Patricia Bove from Saint Cloud, FL

      I made this cake to take to my husband's Aunt & Uncle's for Easter dinner. As there were to be an abundance of desserts, I baked it into 2 loaves and brought one. I followed the recipe, but added a teaspoon of lemon extract to the batter. Everyone loved the great lemon flavor of this cake. I served the other loaf when we had company later in the week, again to rave reviews! There were many requests for the recipe.

      It was good..not great...

      LISA LOMBARDO from Turnersville, NJ

      I thought the cake was moist and tasty, but it did NOT have the texture of a pound cake at all. I didn't care for the glaze that much. It was too tangy. I am not crazy about mixing lemon juice and powdered sugar to make a glaze. It needs something else to cut back on the acid of the lemons. I probably wouldn't make this again because I've had better lemon pound cakes.

      BEST LEMON POUND CAKE EVER!

      Joyce Miller from ,

      First, thank you for this fantastic recipe (an adjective I rarely use). My alterations: I baked the dough in two loaf pans, but for company on its way, I'd use the bundt pan. Next, I melted the morsels at 50% power--easy! Finally, I omitted the glaze. Instead, I brought to a simmer 1/2 c. lemon juice and 1/2 c. granualted sugar. As soon as the cakes were browned and tested done, I poked the tops with a thin-bladed knife. Then, I slowly spooned on the cooled glaze. When the cakes cooled in the pans on cooling racks, I had no problem removing them from the pans (I use parchment paper). I did have a problem resisting the wonderful crust and taste of this cake. Wonderful--a favorite now and forever! (And I've been a baker and saver of recipes for over 30 years.)
