Ingredients
  • 20 oz refrigerated cheese tortellini
  • ¼ cup + 1 Tbsp olive oil, divided
  • 2 oz pepperoni slices, halved
  • 8 oz fresh mozzarella, chopped into ½ inch pieces
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 (6 oz) can black olives, drained
  • 1 (15 oz) can artichoke quarters, drained and roughly chopped
  • ½ cup pepperoncinis, drained and thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup white balsamic vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp Italian seasoning
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
Instructions
  1. Bring a large pot of water to a rolling boil over high heat. Add tortellini and cook according to package directions. Drain, rinse, and transfer to a large bowl. Toss with 1 tablespoon olive oil to avoid sticking.
  2. Add the pepperoni, mozzarella, tomatoes, olives, artichokes, and pepperoncinis; toss. Chop the pepperoni into quarters and add to the bowl.
  3. In a liquid measuring cup or small bowl, whisk together the remaining ⅓ cup olive oil with the vinegar, Italian seasoning, and garlic. Drizzle dressing over the tortellini mixture and toss to coat.
