Summer Tortellini

This is basically my way of using up all the extra bits of veggies and produce before it goes bad, so the vegetables and meat choice are fairly flexible. The ingredients reflect what I used this time, but feel free to swap out the ham with grilled chicken, sausage, salami, or anything other meat. Or add in cubed cheddar or other cheese.

Summer Tortellini

Summer Tortellini

1 pint grape tomatoes, cut in half
1 zucchini, sliced thin
1/2 green pepper, bite size pieces
1/2 red pepper, bite size pieces
1/2 yellow pepper, bite size pieces
2 cups ham, diced
1-2 packages tortellini, cooked according to package
Italian Dressing
Fresh Parmesan

Lightly coat zucchini and pepper in italian dressing and sauté in pan until lightly softened (just to take a bit of the bite out, you still want it crunchy).
Toss ham, sautéed vegetables, tomatoes, tortellini with just enough dressing to lightly coat.
Grate fresh paremesan cheese on top.
