Low-Cook Mediterranean Tortellini Salad

If you’re looking for a low-cook recipe that is still filling and delicious, you’ve come to the right place!

This tortellini salad is super easy to prepare for a summer family dinner or weekly lunches! Other than boiling the tortellini, there is no other cooking necessary to prepare this delicious and nourishing pasta salad.

Prep Time:

15 minutes

Cook Time:

5 minutes


6 servings



1,18 oz. family size bag of tortellini, any flavor (spinach used in this recipe for added nutrients!)

1 medium red onion, diced

4 mini cucumbers, sliced

1 orange bell pepper, diced

1 yellow bell pepper, diced

1 pack of grape tomatoes, cut in half

1 round of fresh mozzarella

1/2 bottle Italian dressing, like Ken’s Steak House

Black pepper, to taste



  1. Place cut vegetables into a large bowl. Cut mozzarella into small pieces and add to vegetables.
  2. Prepare tortellini as directed on the package, boiling about 4-5 minutes in hot water or until desired texture. Boil for less time if you prefer your pasta al-dente, longer for a softer texture.
  3. Drain pasta and add to vegetable and cheese mixture once cool.
  4. Pour half bottle of Italian dressing and black pepper to taste and stir until well-mixed.
