Tossed with a simple dressing of olive oil, lemon juice and oregano, this light Greek-inspired pasta salad is filled with flavour in every bite. Using fresh pasta like Olivieri® 3 Formaggi Rainbow Tortellini enriched with tomatoes and spinach, it’s perfect adding extra nutrients into your meal. And, with a luscious 3 cheese filling of ricotta, Romano and Parmesan, it’s ideal for any picky eaters at the table.
Embrace the best of summer produce by using a rainbow of freshly chopped cucumber, red onion, peppers and cherry tomatoes typical of Mediterranean meals. For an extra Greek touch, use tangy feta cheese and Kalamata olives in place of black olives. Also, make sure to utilize unrefined Extra Virgin Olive Oil for incredible flavour and taste, however, traditional olive oil will also work fine.
Serve up a fun twist on the average pasta salad for a tasty and filling lunch, dinner side or bring it with you to wow everyone at a potluck or BBQ grill out.
