Day 41 - Tortellini Salad

Tortellini Salad, apples, strawberries.

Today!  Today was delicious...cold tortellini salad with fruit on the side.  Not much to say about this one except you need to make it!  It's great hot or cold, and not too unhealthy.

Tortellini Salad

9 oz refrigerated tortellini (any kind - I used Butoni chicken tortelloni)
2 cups fresh spinach, firmly packed
1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
2 T olive oil
2 T red wine vinegar
1 T capers
1 T whole grain or dijon mustard
1 t onion salt

Cook tortellini according to package directions.  Set aside.  In a warm skillet, sautee  spinach until just wilted - you may wish to add cooking spray to aid this process.  Once wilted, stir spinach and bell pepper into tortellini.  Whisk together remaining ingredients and pour over tortellini mixture.  Serve hot or cold.
