Tortellini, Broccoli, and Ham Ceasar Salad

In my search for leftover ham recipes, i came across this recipe that sounded delicious and different.  It was so dang quick to make, and tasted absolutely wonderful.  The leftovers were excellent the next day for lunch, as well :)

Tortellini, Broccoli, and Ham Ceasar Salad
  • 16 oz. package frozen cheese tortellini
  • 1-1/2 cups fresh broccoli florets
  • 1-1/2 cups cubed cooked ham
  • 1 cup creamy Caesar salad dressing (we used light)
  • 10 oz. pkg. romaine lettuce leaves
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Cook tortellini and broccoli together according to tortellini package directions. The frozen tortellini I use cook for 3 minutes. If your tortellini cooks for a longer period of time, add the broccoli during the last 3 minutes of cooking time.
Drain well and combine with ham and Caesar salad dressing in medium bowl. Place lettuce on large platter and top with tortellini mixture. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and serve. 4 servings
