We teamed up with one of our favorite pasta brands sold at Whole Foods, Severino, to bring you this picnic-perfect tortellini salad. It incorporates our new, incredibly easy Kosterina Simple Vinaigrette and truly is delicious as it looks.

You can remove the meats for a more vegetarian friendly option. 

Both Kosterina and Severino Pasta are widely available exclusively at Whole Foods Market!

Ingredients:

(Serves 4 to 6)

  • 1 lb. Severino Tri-Color Cheese Tortellini
  • 1 cup 365 Everyday Value Ciliegine, drained and halved
  • 1/2 cup hard salami, chopped  small
  • 1/2 cup soppressata, chopped small
  • 1 large shallot, minced
  • 1 14oz can 365 Everyday Value artichokes in water, drained and chopped
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved

Kosterina Simple Vinaigrette

Directions:

    • Pour all ingredients into a mason jar, cover with a tight lid and shake vigorously to combine. This is a great dressing for green salads, too.

 Tortellini Directions:

  1. Cook tortellini based on package instructions; cooking in boiling water 2-3 minutes until they float. Drain and rinse to prevent overcooking and empty the tortellini into a large bowl and pour vinaigrette over the pasta.  Mix and set aside.
  2. Chop the other ingredients above, add to the bowl with the tortellini and toss until everything is evenly coasted. Serve immediately or store in the refrigerator until ready to eat.  Tastes great cold or at room temp. Enjoy!

Grilled Shrimp Skewers require minimal effort--just a drizzle of Kosterina Greek Herb & Lemon Olive Oil and a few sprinkles of salt, pepper and dried oregano before they go on the grill.  We love to serve them with our Panzanella salad, chock full of garden vegetables and super crunchy Kosterina croutons.

Making pizza at home is easier than you think.  Our (basically) no knead dough comes together in minutes in a food processor and our secret ingredient to a super flavorful result is our Garlic Oil.  Make a double batch because this dough is perfectly freezable too.
