Asparagus Tortellini Pasta Salad
Today is Tuesday and for our family, that means two days ago we finished a camping weekend. And in three more days we’ll be starting our next camping weekend.
My weekend warrior (a.k.a. my husband) is determined to utilize our motorhome as much as possible this camping season. Our calendar has camping weekends marked all the way through October.
All of this camping means a lot of “prep” work at the campsite. Chopping firewood, relocating picnic tables, setting up around the fire pit, etc. It also means a lot of work around our motorhome.
There’s the awning that needs to be set up and secured into place. Ideally, a two-person job but often my husband tackles this solo. There’s also all the equipment that needs to be brought out from the “basement” storage compartments.
We love having these additional storage areas for all of our bulky items. Lift the doors up and grab or stow your items, the doors are rather heavy and down low to the ground. All of this bending, stretching and moving items around leaves my weekend warrior feeling some aches & pains.
Camping is supposed to be our relaxing family time, I did not want him experiencing aches & pains from getting us set up. To help with his aches & pains I’ve added TYLENOL® 8 HR Muscle Aches & Pain into our camping supplies.
By taking TYLENOL® 8 HR Muscle Aches & Pain my husband is taking back his day by controlling his muscle pain. Muscular aches, backaches, and headaches are temporarily relieved for up to 8 hours so he can get back to enjoying the weekend. Of course, use TYLENOL® 8 HR Muscle Aches & Pain only as directed on package directions.
As you can see after conquering aches & pains, there’s always time for relaxation and plenty of good food around the campground too. That’s what family time and camping are all about for our family.
My weekend warrior skills come into place in the kitchen, I love feeding my family quick and easy meals when we camp. This past weekend I grilled some tasty pork tenderloin and served it along with Asparagus Tortellini Pasta Salad, everyone loved it!
Here’s how to make Asparagus Tortellini Pasta Salad:
Boil refrigerated cheese tortellini according to package directions & rinse with cool water.
Blanch asparagus and give them an ice bath to stop the cooking process! (Look at that color!)
Add together cheese tortellini, blanched asparagus & sliced grape tomatoes.
Next, add crumbled Feta cheese, and prepared Balsamic Vinaigrette dressing. Season with salt & pepper. Chill until serving.
Asparagus Tortellini Pasta Salad is simple and delicious. Perfect for packing into the cooler for picnics or preparing and enjoying at barbecues or parties.
