tortellini, corn, and tomato salad

This is one of our very favorite summer recipes! It is the perfect little recipe that can be served as lunch, or a light dinner. It's perfect to serve as a side at your Fourth of July cookout this weekend! I found this recipe a few years ago and can't remember where. I wrote it down on a post it note and did not reference it. So I apologize for not being able to site where it is from. But all that's important is that you make this!

It's so simple and you'll love it!

18 oz. refrigerated cheese tortellini 
1/2 cup olive oil 
1/2 cup parmesan cheese 
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice 
2 garlic cloves 
1 teaspoon Worcestershire 
1/2 teaspoon salt 
2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved 
1 cup fresh corn kernels 
1/2 cup sliced green onions 
1/2 cup chopped fresh basil 
salt and pepper 

Prepare tortellini according to package directions. Put olive oil and next 5 ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Toss olive oil mixture with tortellini, tomatoes, and next 3 ingredients. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
