Tortellini salad.

This is my favorite thing in the world to make a big batch of and take to work for lunch. It's easy, cheap, and super tasty. And healthy in moderation. What's not to love?

I usually double this recipe (except the dressing)!

What you need

1 9 oz package cheese tortellini (or you could get creative with it and try different flavors!)
1 bottle fat free Italian (you won't need it all)
1/3 cup Parmesan cheese
1 package cherry tomatoes sliced in half
1 10 oz package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed of excess water
1 2 oz can sliced black olives, drained
Salt and pepper to taste


What to do
1. Cook the tortellini till al dente. Drain and rinse with cold water. 
2. Mix all the ingredients except Italian dressing until well combined.
3. Add just enough Italian dressing to coat.

Yup, 3 steps. Thank me later.
