Tortellini, Tomato and Salmon Salad

I made this for dinner last night.  It is one of dh's favorite meals.  It is SO good, that I thought I would place it here for you all to enjoy.  The best part about this recipe is that it goes together really quickly!


1 pkg. (16-19oz) refrigerated cheese-filled tortellini

2 cups fresh or frozen broccoli (fresh is best!)

1 can (14 3/4oz) salmon, drained and chunked (I just baked some out of the freezer)

1 small tomato, seeded and diced OR 1/2 c. sundried tomatoes, julienne cut (highly recommend!)

3/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese (I used the grated stuff for spaghetti and only used half)

8oz regular or reduced-calorie Italian dressing with cheese


Cook tortellini according to package directions.  Drain; rinse in cold water.  Transfer to large bowl.  Microwave broccoli on HIGH 1-2 minutes, add to pasta.  Stir in salmon, tomato, cheese and dressing.


Makes 2 quarts, about 4-6 servings.


I had some french bread dough in the freezer that I got out around 2pm.  By 5pm, it had thawed, and I shaped it into rolls.  They turned out SO good and were a big hit with the salad!
