Gourmet Tortellini Salad

Entrée Salads

During these dog days of summer, I don’t feel like eating anything heavy. I crave fresh foods, and farmers’ markets are full of a rainbow of amazing fruits and vegetables that call out to me. Support your local farmers and enjoy a light meal by making salad your entrée. Just grab a fresh baguette from a local bakery and you have a fulfilling meal. Enjoy! ~ Valerie

Gourmet Tortellini Salad
Instructions
  1. Heat 4 tablespoons olive oil in deep skillet and saute leeks for 2 minutes.
  2. Add chicken broth, lemon juice and tortellini. Cook until most of the liquid has been absorbed into the tortellini, about 3 minutes. Move the tortellini around in the pan as it cooks to prevent sticking. If using meat, add now.
  3. Add remaining olive oil (can add less if you prefer), red pepper flakes, tomatoes, feta and basil. Remove from heat. Cool and refrigerate.
  4. When ready to serve, plate the spinach and top with tortellini mix and a sprig of basil. Beautiful, delicious and super easy.
