Serves: 10 

  • 500g fresh cheese tortellini

  • 300g baby plum tomatoes, halved
  • 2 spring onions, finely chopped

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Extra time:1hr chilling  ›  Ready in:1hr30min 

  1. Cook the tortellini according to the package instructions, drain, rinse with cold water and refrigerate until cool, about 30 minutes.
  2. Place the bacon in a large, deep frying pan and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon on a kitchen towel-lined plate. Chop the bacon into 1.25cm pieces while still a little warm.
  3. Place the tortellini, bacon, broccoli, baby plum tomatoes and spring onions into a salad bowl. Pour the dressing over the ingredients and toss lightly to coat. Chill in refrigerator before serving.
