Mama first fell in love on a picnic one hot summer day, always remembering the words she spoke before they left: “Voglio vivere la vita intera con te.” (“ I want to be with you forever.”) The perfect meal for the perfect summer day.
Cheese tortellini, halved grape tomatoes, red onion and basil vinaigrette are tossed together and finished with a dusting of Mama Francesca Classic Parmesan.
Suggestion: Warming your vinaigrette before tossing it with the ingredients will help infuse the tortellini and vegetables.
