I love Caprese Salad. I could eat it daily. I love it so much I have incorporated it in two recipes now. The first was my Caprese Pizza and now my Tortellini Caprese Salad.
1 package of frozen tortellini (my bag was 1 pound 3 ounces)
1 container of grape tomatoes
I package of fresh mozzarella pearls
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 heaping cup scallions, mine were tiny, I used green and white snipped with kitchen shears
1/2 teaspoon Italian Seasoning
Basil leaves, I love basil and I had some tiny new leaves and I snipped probably 8 leaves total (use as many as you like, to taste)
Balsamic Glaze on top as garnish (can be purchased at grocery store near vinegars)
Prepare frozen tortellini according to package directions. My package was cooked in 3 minutes. Drain and rinse under cold water until tortellini is cool. In a bowl, combine all ingredients except balsamic glaze. Drizzle balsamic glaze, garnish with additional basil leaves if desired. Manga, manga!
