I actually served this dish last week but thought it was perfect to share with you today.  This dish can be served warm or at room temperature.  It is a perfect dish to bring to a potluck because it doesn't need to be refrigerated.  

It only takes minutes to put together and you can be on your way out the door to whatever celebration you are attending.  This is also a great meal that comes together quickly on a busy weeknights. Enjoy.

Tortellini Pesto Primavera

1 (9 oz) pkg. 3 cheese tortellini
1 T. pesto, store bought or homemade
