Searched for something to use up some leftover tortellini and so glad I did! We really liked this one and look forward to trying it again once it’s nice out and we can use the bbq. I used extra tomatoes, added spinach and feta to the salad because I needed to use it up and doubled the recipe to make sure everything was coated. Turned out great.

The tortellini salad is why I'm giving this 5 stars, haha.

Pork marinade and cooking instructions make the meat delicious! Zucchini def would have been better had I had a grill. Did the tortellini salad as advised, but think next time I'd nix the balsamic and trade for pesto. Seems more summer-y and less harsh to me.

The pork was really great! Had with some roasted broccoli as we are not big fans of zucchini. I also added goat cheese to the tortellini.
