Tortellini toss

Preparation time: 20 minutes
Chilling time: 6 hours

Tortellini toss

1 package (9 ounces) refrigerated rainbow-herb, five-cheese tortellini
8 ounces fresh mushrooms, thickly sliced
5 ounces (approximately 1 cup) cherry or grape tomatoes, quartered
1 bottle (8 ounces) fat-free Italian dressing

Fill a 2-quart pot 2/3 full with water and bring to a boil. Add tortellini. Reduce heat to a gentle boil (to avoid breaking open tortellini), and cook, stirring occasionally, 6–7 minutes or until pasta is tender but firm. Drain tortellini, rinse with cool water, and drain well again.

In a large bowl, combine cooked tortellini, mushrooms, and tomatoes. Drizzle with dressing and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate at least 6 hours to allow flavors to blend; toss twice during chilling to recoat tortellini.
