Tortellini Salad


1 (9-ounce) package tortellini

1/2 cup Italian dressing

1 cup broccoli, chopped

2 cups plum tomatoes, chopped

1 green onion, chopped

1 carrot, peeled and sliced

1 garlic clove, minced

Parmesan cheese, grated (optional)

Cook tortellini according to directions. Slightly cool tortellini and coat with salad dressing. Let pasta completely cool, then add chopped broccoli, tomatoes, onion, carrot and garlic. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Add more salad dressing, if needed. Gently stir and refrigerate for a few hours before serving. Note: You can chop broccoli and tomatoes with a hand chopper so they come out in a uniform minced form.
