Blackstone Italian Tortellini Caesar Salad

Blackstone Italian Tortellini Caesar Salad

This dinner recipe for the griddle is, in my opinion, the perfect light and fresh summer meal… Blackstone Italian Tortellini Caesar Salad!

Think of it as a cross between an Italian sub and a pasta salad.

But all tossed together with a Caesar salad 🙂

Yes, Yes… the griddle or flat top grill is not a MUST to make this dish.

BUT, it does add to the slightly crisp, yet still soft texture of the tortellini, and gives the deli meats a special flare as well.

Plus, cooking on the griddle is just waaaaayyyy more fun 😉

How to make Blackstone Italian Tortellini Caesar Salad

First thaw a 10 ounce bag of cheese tortellini and place it on a tray (no need to boil the pasta, just thawing is perfect).

Then dice some ham, salami, and pepperoni.

A little Italian seasoning as well and we are ready to head to the Blackstone or flat top griddle.

prepped ingredients on a tray

Preheat the griddle to medium for a few minutes, then add some cooking oil of choice along with the thawed tortellini.

Squirt some water and cover with a melting dome for 5 to 6 minutes total.
