Summer Harvest and Tortellini Caesar Salad

It is always best to use what you have fresh when creating any meal.  During the late summer months, I love picking fresh herbs and veggies to use in recipes like the one on this post today.  The fresh tomatoes right off the vine are the best!  I encourage you to try growing some of your own.  Search my site for easy home gardening tips so you can start today.

Below you will find images from my recipe share today.  I hope they inspire you to garden and cooking this up today.  It is a super recipe using mostly what I have on hand.  You can use any pasta that is tiny and holds the dressing well.
