This satisfying pasta salad features three-cheese tortellini, which comes in a variety of flavors. Try either the chicken or mushroom version for a different variation. Freeze leftover tortellini in a zip-top plastic bag to use later in a soup or side dish.

How to Make It

Step 1

Cook pasta in 1 quart boiling water 6 minutes, omitting salt and fat. Add asparagus to boiling water, and cook 1 minute. Drain in a colander, and rinse with cold water until cooled. Drain.

Step 2

While pasta and asparagus cook, combine roasted bell peppers and next 7 ingredients in a large bowl. Add tortellini and asparagus; toss gently.

Step 4

Prosciutto (pro-SHOO-toh), also known as Parma ham, is a salt-cured ham that is typically sliced thin and often eaten raw or lightly cooked, making it perfect to use in quick-cooking recipes. A little prosciutto offers a powerful punch of flavor in this dish, so you'll only need to use a small amount.

There is not an ingredient in this recipe that I don't love. Very easy to put together but the flavors did not come together for me. I even added a little olive oil and salt at the end, but that didn't help.
