    Got a bit of broccoli in the 'fridge? Partial bag of shredded carrots? Three whole mushrooms? Slice 'em up and add 'em on! Great way to use up the 'little bits' of fresh veggies... And it's even better the next day as left overs for lunch! Flavors are even better!

    Vinaigrette pasta chicken salad

    Wanda Boland from East Moriches NY

    My family loves this, and we use 2 bags of tortellini. Very simple, doesn't heat up the kitchen and full of luscious flavor. A favorite.

    Fast and Delicious

    mfumbo from Norman, Ok

    I think this is an excellent recipe. I use two packages of tortellini to one pesto sauce. It is super easy and fast ! You can even leave out the chicken and serve as a side dish or vegetarian entree.
