This is such a pretty salad - mixed veggies, tri-color pasta, and pea pods. The dressing is a zesty Italian, and there 's lots of Parmesan cheese tossed in. It 's chilled overnight and makes a lot.

- 27 ounces tri-colored cheese-filled tortellini
- 1 (2 pound) package mixed vegetables
- 1 pound snow peas
- 1/4 cup corn oil

- 1 (.7 ounce) package dry Italian-style salad dressing mix
