Hi. I'm chef Maria Liberati, from the award winning book series, The Basic Art of Italian Cooking. Today, I'm cooking three cheese tortellini pasta salad with grape tomatoes and green olives. Everyone always thinks of tortellini being cooked in a cream sauce. This is a cold pasta salad. We're using eight ounces of dried tortellini that I've cooked, eight ounces of grape tomatoes that have been quartered, and eight green olives that have been quartered already. What I'm going to do is put in the bowl my three cheese tortellini, gently because you don't want to break your tortellini, my grape tomatoes. I'm going to mix these around and again you do want to do this gently because tortellini do break quickly. I'm putting in my green olives now and I'm mixing them all together. And now I'm going to add a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil, and I'm going to mix this all around. A dash of freshly grated black pepper, and this dish is ready to be plated and served. I'm Maria Liberati, from The Basic Art of Italian Cooking. Thanks for watching.
