Tortellini Salad

A trio of cheese-filled pastas accented by Mediterranean ingredients -
artichoke hearts, black olive, and sun-dried tomatoes in an oregano-
scented balsamic vinaigrette. This is a standard buffet party dish in our
house.
10 ounce package fresh cheese-filled egg tortellini
10 ounce package fresh cheese-filled spinach tortellini
10 ounce package fresh cheese-filled hot pepper tortellini
2 (14 ounce) cans artichoke hearts, drained and quartered
1 large can (drained weight 6 ounces) pitted, small, ripe black
olives, drained
1 cup coarsely chopped sun-dried tomatoes
1/3 cup pine nuts, toasted (see below)
Vinaigrette:
-----------
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
lots of freshly ground black pepper (I use 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon)
3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
3/4-cup olive oil
1. Cook the tortellini according to package directions. Drain well.
2. In a large bowl, combine the cooked pasta, artichoke hearts, black
olives, sun-dried tomatoes, and pine nuts.
3. In a small bowl, whisk together the dressing ingredients. Pour the
vinaigrette over the warm pasta and toss well. Serve at room temperature
(This may be prepared up to 24 hours in advance and refrigerated until
needed. Return to room temperature to present.)
