Serving: 7 servings. | Prep: 10m | Ready in: 25m

Ingredients
• 1 package (19 oz.) frozen cheese tortellini
• 1-1/2 cups julienned zucchini
• 1-1/2 cups julienned yellow summer squash
• 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
• 1 tbsp. olive oil
• 1 tbsp. minced garlic
• 3/4 tsp. Italian seasoning
• 1/4 tsp. pepper
• 1 cup julienned sweet red pepper
• 1/2 cup sliced red onion, halved
• 1 cup balsamic vinaigrette

Direction
• Cook tortellini following the direction on the package. At the same time, in a large skillet, sauté mushrooms, yellow squash and zucchini in oil until they turn crisp-tender. Add pepper, Italian seasoning and garlic; stir well. Continue cooking for another 1 minutes or until the garlic is tender enough.
• Drain the tortellini and use cold water to rinse. Transfer it to a large bowl and combine it with onion, red pepper and squash mixture. Pour vinaigrette slightly on top and stir so that it can be fully coated. Refrigerate or enjoy right away. Use a slotted spoon for easier serve.
