Anslea's Tortellini Salad

This was introduced to me by little miss Anslea, who tries to stay away from healthy food!

1 Pkg Baby Spinach or 2-3c
1-1 1/2 c Skim Motzarella Cheese
1/4c Real Bacon Pieces
1-1 1/2c Cherry Tomatoes
Tortellini ( I buy the spinach cheese)

Ranch Dressing
Little fact: Did you know that ranch dressing has MSG in it? What is Msg? It is that mono sodium glutimate that makes you feel hungry a little bit after you eat. It is not super harmful, but what are you going to do when you are hungry? EAT AGAIN. Here is recipe for home made ranch that has natural ingredients. Don't we all feel good when we know exactly what it is we are eating?

Homemade Ranch Dressing
1 cup of real mayonnaise
1 cup of Milk ( i use 1%)
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon dried parsley
1 teaspoon dill
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder

I made this tonight and it was so good! It was thinner than your normal ranch but it was tasty! I mixed all the ingredients together and then whisked it to get it smooth.
We are also having home made rolls, these are super yummy and easy to make. I will post that recipe later.
