Recipe : Poppyseed Tortellini Pasta Salad

Are you ready for the easiest, yummiest, quickest pasta salad recipe that will be a hit at every single one of your cook outs this summer?

Well look no further.
I can't believe I haven't shared this recipe with you yet!
My mom and I whipped it up for Easter brunch with Mister's family and, once again, it was a hit!

Ingredients :
(we made a double batch, ingredients listed are for a single)
-1 package frozen tortellini
-1 can mandarin oranges, drained and chopped in half
-1 cup grapes, chopped in half
-1 bottle poppyseed dressing
1. Boil pasta until tender and drain
2. Transfer pasta to larger bowl to mix
3. Combine oranges, grapes, pasta and poppyseed dressing and mix until well coated
4.  Cover and let rest in the fridge for at least 4 hours
(salad may need re-tossed before serving after sitting in the fridge)
See, could not be easier!

my style has changed from casual jeans & tshirts all the time (college) to professional slacks & blouses - a more grown up look now that i have a full time job!

This is a gluten festival but it sound so so tasty! If I could eat this I would make it and add almond slivers! Yum!

This looks so good! Some of my favorite things all in ONE salad. Doesn't get much better than that! I just need to find some gluten-free tortellini!

My style has changed to more casual of a look. Boring! I still dress up for date nights but nothing else.
