Creamy Tortellini Salad with Chicken, Bacon, and Ranch Dressing

Ingredients

  • 1 (9 oz) pkg refrigerated cheese tortellini
  • ¼ cup ranch dressing
  • 1 Tbs milk
  • 8 oz cubed, cooked chicken
  • 2 ½ oz fresh mozzarella, diced
  • ⅓ cup chopped cooked bacon
  • 2 Tbs chopped green onions
  • 1 Tbs chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste (optional)

 

Directions

  1. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil. Stir in tortellini and return to a boil. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the tortellini float to the top and the filling is hot, about 3 minutes.
  2. Run tortellini under cold water and drain. Store in the refrigerator until chilled, at least 30 minutes.
  3. Stir ranch dressing and milk together in a large bowl. Add chilled pasta, cooked chicken, mozzarella, bacon, green onions, and parsley.
  4. Toss to combine. Season with salt and pepper if desired.
