  • 1 large tomato, chopped

Pasta Salad

I used cooked chicken instead of tuna. It was easy to cook, but kind of bland. I had to add more balsamic vinegar.

Great side for BBQ's

I make this in the summer time as a side for BBQ's. I either omit the tuna all together or use canned chicken. Do not overcook the tortellini and be sure to use plenty of salt in the water. Easy to make ahead, but do not put the dressing on until minutes before serving (it will be absorbed and make the salad dry). I have made this several times and many friends and family request that i bring to their cookouts!

tasty tuna

This was a really good dish, but was lacking flavor. I even added lots of cracked pepper and salt but was still missing something, not sure! Will make again though
