Simple food is best sometimes! My 15 minute, 6 ingredient Greek Tortellini Pasta Salad is a long time family favorite.
Frozen tortellini to the rescue again, friends! I love this simple, veggie packed Greek Tortellini Pasta Salad.
Don’t ya just want to get a big fork of it?
My Greek Tortellini Pasta Salad works for all seasons, but it is even more ideal in summer when fresh tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers can be pulled from right out of your garden. I grow all of those veggies right outside my back door.
That fresh parsley is mine too. #winning
This recipe can be made in less than 15 minutes right before dinner OR assembled ahead of time and chilled. I like to make it in the morning if I know I’m not going to have time to cook later.
And yes, I know it’s pasta and cheese… but there is an equal amount of fresh nutrient packed veggies in this.
Feel free to use your favorite packaged Greek Salad dressing OR follow my recipe from Tuesday for Homemade Healthy Greek Salad Dressing. You can make a batch and eat it all week. It is really VERY simple, only 7 pantry-friendly ingredients and worth the time.

This recipe was originally published in August of 2014. I’ve updated the text and photos in July 2016.
Greek Tortellini Pasta Salad is another classic Running in a Skirt recipe that I’ve re-shot this summer. If you’ve been around since the beginning, I hope you don’t mind seeing these again. I felt like some of my favorite recipes deserved a bit of a makeover.
Just for fun this is what this post looked like the first time around. I had my nice camera, but had never taken it out of manual mode, used a free online editor and didn’t have any of my cool props yet! I did put some effort into styling with the herbs and peppers. 🙂 I remember actually being very proud of it at that time.
It’s been a really inspiring process for me to grow and learn from my mistakes this way. I’m fairly certain and hope I look back at these new photos one day and feel like they need a redo again.
And oh yes…. click over for the recipe! Updated in a handy, dandy printable format.
