Easy Tortellini Pasta Salad Recipe

Life is busy. One of the things I've been working on this month is not eating out at lunch time so much.  It's easier said than done because fast food is just so convenient.  I'm always leaving my lunch at home or just don't have time to make anything that I want.  I know excuses excuse but I bet some of you are in the same boat as I .  My coworkers and I have been trying to come up with a solution to our eating out woes and instead of eating out every single day doing it on Fridays. We've been alternating sandwiches and salads which has been a yummy alternative to our fast food ruts.  I've been trying to think of something new to add to our lunch menu.   Then Miss Jamie sent me her super easy tortellini pasta salad and I said there we go!
