Summer Tortellini Salad

Food for a whole week :)  This was good - but it was SUPER rich...I don't think I put the Ranch dressing on next time....maybe just throw some olive oil on there to lighten it up a bit.

9oz package cheese tortellini
1 medium zucchini, thinly sliced
1 large carrot, peeled and chopped
1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
4 green onions, thinly sliced
1/4 cup fresh parsley, snipped
1/2 cup ranch dressing
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated

Cook tortellini according to package directions, drain and rinse under cold running water.  Place tortellini in a large colander and set aside.

Meanwhile, slice zucchini and chop carrot.  Cut tomatoes in half and slice green onions.  Snip Parsley.  Add veggies to tortellini.

Pour salad dressing over salad - sprinkle with Parmesan.  Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.
