This is not yo' mama's spinach salad...cheese filled tortellini, red cabbage, cherry tomatoes, green onions, bacon and ranch dressing strut their stuff when paired up with the fresh spinach!

1 (9oz.) pkg. refrigerated cheese-filled tortellini
2 cups shredded red cabbage
6 cups lightly packed torn fresh spinach
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
1/2 cup sliced green onions
1 (8oz.) bottle Ranch dressing
8 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled

Cook tortelini according to package directions; drain. Rinse with cold water; drain.

Layer cabbage, spinach, tortellini, tomatoes, and green onions in a 3-quart trifle bowl or 9X13 baking dish. Pour dressing over salad. Cover and chill at least 3 hours. Sprinkle with crumbled bacon just before serving.
Serves: 6

“He that sups upon salad, goes not to bed fasting”~Thomas Fuller, English clergyman (1608-1661)
