Therese @ The Musings of a Mom has started a new thread called Recipe Swap Thursday. Thought I might get involved, so here is my contribution, sans pictures because I really was not prepared.
This is another one from one of my favorite Taste of Home publications called Tortellini Ceasar
Salad. It has a gold star in my rating system. Like I would share one with a Mr Yuk sticker!
1 9oz package frozen cheese tortellini
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup plus 1/3 cup shredded Parmesean cheese, divided
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 garlic cloves, mince8 cups torn romaine
1 cup seasoned salad croutons
halved cherry tomatoes, optional
Cook tortellini according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a small bowll, combine the mayonnaise, milk, 1/4 cup cheese, lemon juice and garlic; mix well.
Drain tortellini and rinse in cold water; place in large bowl. Add the romaine and remaining cheese.
Just before serving, drizzle with the dressing and toss to coat. Top with croutons and tomatoes, if desired.
I found this was an easy recipe to cut down to serve just the two of us, and it would be equally easy to double to serve a crowd.
