We loved this recipe. Tortellini is so good, but I get sick of it in soups. This such a light and fulfilling way to enjoy it!

4 Reviews for Broccoli & Tortellini Salad with Arugula Pesto
The arugula pesto is delicious and easy. Used it on some small garlic toasts at a party with cocktails. Topped tomato halves with it and put under the broiler. Thinned it with some more oil and used as a salad dressing.
We found this to be very tasty. Easy to make. Especially since I used store bought pesto. This made it quite easy to make.
I really enjoyed this! The lemon zest added brightness to the flavor, and the method of pouring the pasta water over the broccoli was a great time saver. This is a great summer recipe with barely any cooking.
Because I wanted something less rich, I halved the parmesan and the olive oil (subbing in extra pasta water). I also omitted the pine nuts to cut costs a little.
