  • 2 (8.8-ounce) packages DeLallo Cheese Tortellini
  • 3 tablespoons DeLallo Sun-Dried Tomato, Basil & Cheese Simply Pesto Sauce
  • 2 teaspoons DeLallo Basil Simply Pesto Sauce
  • 2/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon DeLallo Grated Pecorino Romano Cheese
  • 1 tablespoon DeLallo Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • 1/4 cup DeLallo Extra Light Olive Oil
  • Pinch of minced garlic
  • 1/2 (13.75-ounce) can DeLallo Quartered Artichokes in Brine, drained and chopped
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper


In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook cheese tortellini for all dente texture, following package instructions. Once pasta is cooked, drain and rinse. Tortellini must be cool to make salad.

Combine pesto sauces, mayonnaise, cheeses, oil and garlic in a large mixing bowl. Once thoroughly combined, gently mix in cooled pasta and artichokes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
