This is one of my favorites.  You layer it in a clear trifle bowl and it is pretty, easy and yummy!

Layered Tortellini Pesto Chicken Salad

Cook 9 oz package of refrigerated cheese tortellini. Add a cup of peas during the last 4 minutes of cooking. Drain and rinse with cold water.


5 cups torn romaine lettuce
1 1/2 c. matchstick carrots
2 c. cooked, cubed chicken
tortellini and peas mixture (see above)
1 red bell pepper, cut into strips


1/2 c. light mayo
1/2 c. basil pesto
1/4 c. buttermilk

Top with fresh, chopped parsley or basil leaves. This is also good without the chicken if you'd like a vegetarian salad.
