I developed this Tortellini Pasta Salad with Basil Pesto, Corn and Sundried Tomatoes recipe as part of an ongoing Brand Ambassadorship with Peapod. All opinions are 100% mine.
Summertime picnics are my jam. I love the spontaneity picnics bring, finding the perfect spot to set up shop, and whipping up creative picnic food that transports well and is delicious. In true Italian form whenever I think picnics, I think pasta salad. This dish was a summer staple growing up, but recently I have started to make it with cheese tortellini instead of regular pasta.
I found this cheese tortellini from the new Barilla Collezione while perusing Peapod and you better believe I will be one click re-ordering them asap. They are fluffy, delicate and super cheesy, making the pasta salad flavor much more dynamic. Oh and pro tip – the longer it sits the better it becomes. The sundried tomatoes and fresh corn bring a slight sweetness to the whole party which compliments the herbaceous and garlicky pesto in pretty much the best way ever.
