Bunco Baby ~

Last week I was lucky to host my neighborhood bunco - I am super lucky, not only do I have "neighborly" neighbors, but they are all super fun to hang out with!

I wanted to share my Mom's fantastic Tortellini Salad. It is always a hit and it is super easy to make.

2 - 12oz Package Cheese Tortellini - Cooked and Cooled
1 - 8 1/2 oz Water Packed Artichokes - Drained and Quartered
1 Cup Diced Tomatoes
1 Cup Crumbled Feta
1/2 Cup Sliced Black Olives
1/2 Cup Chopped Walnuts
Dressing- Mix the following together:
1/4 Cup White Wine Vinegar
1/4 Cup Chopped Green Onions
3 Cloves Garlic Chopped
1 Tablespoon Basil
1 teaspoon Dried Dill
1/2 Cup Oil
Then simply toss the cooked pasta, dressing and remaining ingredients together. I think it tastes much better after it has "marinated" for a few hours. Just make sure to toss before serving - and you might have to add a bit more dressing as the pasta can really soak it up.

Thanks ladies for a great night!

I love to see what other people serve at Bunco as I am always looking for new ideas. It's my turn to host next month. Thanks for the looks really good! Love your wine choices too!

Oh, our Bunco group in our neighborhood disbanned! I think some of the women were a little dysfunctional and it became work. Can I join yours, lol?

Yummy looking recipe, I'll add that to my recipe page!

Love that wine bottle label front and center in the last picture! : ) That salad looks and sounds so good, Chelsea! I would love to make that and be able to eat it, but my gluten free diet keeps me from wonderful pastas like tortellini.
