This was a good salad, but it didn't have the "punch" I was looking for. The use of tortellini pasta was nice. I probably won't make this again because there are better options out there.

This is a nice summer dinner. I used swiss chard from the garden instead of spinach, I also added some minced garlic. I like the idea of using vinegar instead of some lemon juice to add zip. I might try that next time. I thought the navy beans were great with it.

I doubled this recipe and it served 9 people for lunch with a couple of servings of seconds,and 3 servings left over. It held up very well in the fridge two days later. I cooked the tortellini the night before and stored it in the fridge. I bought sliced pepperoncini to save time and simply rough cut it. I made the recipe exactly as written and it was very, very good! I will definitely make it regularly.

I made this with only one change I added more pepperoncinis. I bought the sliced so they were easy to do. Great flavors. I might try a different tortellini next time with italina ham. Side dish great. Main dish great! Make ahead to take to a lunch or brunch as a dish to pass.

Very good, simple recipe with lots working for it. I love basil, so I'll use a basil seasoned rice vinegar in place of 1 tbsp lemon juice for more zip.

Fantastic recipe! Very flavorful and EASY! Made once a couple of weeks ago, and have had it almost every week since then. I omit the capers as I feel their flavor gets lost with the basil, lemon and pepperoncinis. I sometimes add a few chopped slices of dry italian salami and a splash of balsamic vinegar. Perfect for summer!

I made this for a picnic recently and everyone loved it! It's a great dish if you're tired of traditional pasta salads. I omitted the capers and added some of the liquid from the jar of pepperoncinis as well as diced red bell pepper. Definitely going to make it again.

As a person who isn't crazy for salads, I can say that this was a wonderful recipe! Very flavorful and lots of textures. Not to mention easy to prepare. I'll definitely make this again!

What a fabulous main dish salad this is! I couldn't believe how much my husband loved it and raved about it. It's quick, tasty, healthy and it's a colorful presentation! I'll be making this one a lot, especially on Meatless Mondays!

Oh my gosh! I don't normally take the time to review recipes, but I have to say this was favorite! So fresh tasting and light...with a little kick from the pepperoncini's. I could not stop eating (even though it's very filling) the taste was just so good! We paired it with a Mediterranean-seasoned, pan seared chicken breast because we are "meat at every meal" kind of family. And we used about half a can of navy beans which was still slight overkill by proportion. Absolutely delicious!

Wonderful and easy! My whole family loved it! I added half a cup of diced red onion and one more T olive oil.

Made this for a party; should have doubled the recipe as it disappeared too fast! I made it exactly as written and wouldn't change a thing. Wonderful.

This was surprisingly very good.....I did have to sub dried basil for the fresh basil, and added a few more peppers than listed in the recipe....otherwise followed as written. I will definitely make this again.
