Here's a pasta dish that doesn't need a beacon to attract attention. Our Lighthouse Tortellini Salad is fresh, easy, and perfect for warm weather picnics by the sea (or lake!). We just love how all the ingredients come together to make it taste so creamy and flavorful.

What You'll Need

  • 2 (9-ounce) packages cheese tortellini
  • 1 (8-ounce) package imitation crabmeat, flaked
  • 1/4 cup chopped roasted peppers, drained on paper towels
  • 3/4 cup peppercorn ranch dressing
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese

What to Do

  1. Cook tortellini according to package directions; drain, rinse, and drain again; set aside to cool.
  2. In a large bowl, combine remaining ingredients; add tortellini and mix well. Cover and chill at least 2 hours before serving.

Hi This looks good, but I do have a question. Is there ANYTHING I can use instead of crabmeat? We do not like seafood. Sorry. Thanks for any help you can give me. )

Hi there! If you do not want to use crab meat, you can substitute canned or cooked-diced chicken. You can also add more vegetable if you'd like to use as a filler as well. Enjoy!

I've never heard of pepper parmesan dressing. Is there a name brand so I can look for it?

Olde Cape Cod brand at Walmart has a parmesan peppercorn dressing as well as Ken's brand.

Ben's Chili Dog

Ben's Chili Bowl has been a landmark restaurant in Washington D.C. since 1958. The restaurant first became famous for its homemade chili dogs. After getting tasting one, we knew we had to recreate this chili in our Test Kitchen. Our recipe for Ben's Chili Dog is the next best thing to the real version, and your family is going to devour it.
