  • Cook tortellini according to package directions. Rinse, drain, and set aside to cool.
  • Cook broccoli just enough so that it is crisp-tender. Rinse with cold water to stop cooking and drain well. Pat with paper towels to soak up excess moisture.
  • Combine the tortellini and broccoli together in a large bowl.
  • Dice the pepper and finely chop the onion; add to the tortellini and broccoli.
  • In a separate bowl combine the mayonnaise, whipping cream, ranch dressing, and garlic salt. Stir until well blended.
  • Pour the dressing over the tortellini and broccoli mixture. Stir until everything is evenly coated.
  • Add the Parmesan cheese, reserving some to sprinkle on top of the salad. Stir the cheese into the salad to distribute evenly. Pour into your serving bowl and sprinkle with the remaining Parmesan cheese.

"I had this salad at my sisters last weekend and I had her send me the link to this recipe so I could make it sometime. It was really good. The cheese tortellini really gave the salad some substance. We had it along with a grilled steak. It was the perfect side. We didn't need anything else to go with it. You could serve this as a meal on its own and even add a little ham or chicken if you wanted to. I know I will be making it soon."
