Directions

Directions:

Bring a large pot of water to a boil, cook pasta according to instructions on package. Drain and rinse under cool water and set aside.

Heat olive oil in a large skillet over high heat. Carefully add the chile and corn and reduce heat to medium-high. Cook, stirring frequently, until the corn and chile has char marks, about 5 minutes. Pour into a large mixing bowl.

Add the tomatoes, zucchini and tortellini to mixing bowl. Add the crème fraiche and season with salt and pepper. Gently toss together. Adjust seasoning to taste.

Pour the salad into a serving dish and top with the cilantro leaves. Serve and enjoy!

Cheese Shopping Tip

If a piece of cheese smells strongly of ammonia, don't buy it. This is typically a sign of spoilage.

Cheese Cooking Tip

Allow cheese to come to room temperature before serving. This will accentuate the flavors and aromas.
