Get in my Belly: Broccoli and Tortellini Salad

This is one of the most referenced recipes in my homemade Way Yum Food Cookbook! A great recipe for any time of the year.

It's from an Allrecipes recipe that I modified a smidge: "Crisp, fresh broccoli and cheese tortellini with a creamy dressing are the basis of this salad. Raisins, sunflower seeds and red onion dress it up."


1/2 lb bacon
20 ounces fresh cheese-filled tortellini
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup white sugar
2 teaspoons cider vinegar
3 heads fresh broccoli, cut into florets
1 cup golden raisins
1 cup sunflower seeds
1 red onion, finely chopped


Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain, crumble and set aside.

Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook tortellini in boiling water for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente. Drain, and rinse under cold water.

In a small bowl, mix together mayonnaise, sugar and vinegar to make the dressing.

In a large bowl, combine broccoli, tortellini, bacon, raisins, sunflower seeds and red onion. Pour dressing over salad, and toss.
