  • 1 cup baby carrots, thinly sliced crosswise
  • 1 (12-ounce) block mozzarella cheese, cubed
  • 1 cup creamy Italian salad dressing

Cook tortellini as directed on package. Drain and mix with the peppers and sliced carrots. Then add the mozzarella cheese and salad dressing; mix gently. Cover and refrigerate for 2-24 hours.

Great!, Guest Toddman

I made this for New Year's last year and I'm making it again this year. It's so simple. And looks really impressive.
