Looks pretty, but in this case, looks are nothing. I experimented with a tri-color cheese tortellini salad. Yuck. The tortellini were the frozen kind. I cooked them one minute less than the directions indicated and they turned out mushy and most pieces had lost their cheese filling. I tossed with some Italian dressing and a bit of shredded Parmesan cheese to try to dress it up and it was still a failure. Lesson learned: fresh tortellini is probably a better option.
