Pantry Pasta Salad

½ package dried cheese tortellini or more if you have a whole package!
1 cup orzo (cooked separately)
1/4 chunk feta crumbled
3 green onions chopped
1 roasted red pepper chopped
3 stalks celery chopped
1/3 cup chopped kalamata olives
20 slices turkey pepperoni sliced
½ cup salad dressing (I used light ceasar)
1 T brown mustard

Mix cooked hot pasta with all ingredients. Eat warm or chilled, as you prefer.

Add in whatever catches your fancy in your pantry or fridge - cubed cheese, chopped ham or turkey, fresh or sundried tomatoes, Vidalia onion, Parmesan, artichoke hearts ( I meant to put these in but forgot!)

Great for lunches when you are sick of sandwiches - LIKE ME!

LOL - if you used light dressing (which I did) and just regular pasta - it's not too bad. I would ramp up the veggies - but I didn't have anything else!!!!
