Once again it’s time for Freaky Friday and this time it’s the summer edition.  I’m always excited when Freaky Friday rolls around because it’s so much fun.  It’s recipe swap that some of my blogger friends and I participate in.   We’ve all been assigned a blog to pick a recipe from and then cook and share that recipe on our blog.  What’s so fun is having the chance to try out another bloggers recipe and then share it with our own readers and introduce you to some great blogs.  The other fun part is that none of us know who has our blog, it’s a secret to be revealed today.

For this Freaky Friday, I was assigned Who Needs A Cape.  This blog is run by Heather and Lori.  These two met years ago online and eventually decided to start a blog together.  What I love about their blog is that it’s full of simple, easy, family friendly recipes.  It was really hard to narrow my choice down to one recipe.  Some of the recipes that stood out to me were their Zesty Ranch Grilled Chicken Thighs as well as  Creamy Chorizo Bean Dip and Slow Cooker Pork Satay with Rice Noodles.  They all sound so delicious, I can’t wait to give them a try!

Since it’s been so hot here in Minnesota, I really wanted to try a recipe that wouldn’t heat up my kitchen and wouldn’t be too heavy.  So when I saw this Tortellini Caprese Salad, I knew that it was the recipe for me.  And let me tell you, it did not disappoint.  It’s full of all the delicious flavors of caprese and it’s easily ready in under 30 minutes. It’s perfect as a side dish or a light main dish.This Tortellini Caprese Salad is sure to become your favorite summer salad.  It takes less than 30 minutes to prepare and tastes absolutely amazing.

When I say this recipe is easy, I mean it’s SO easy.  While the water was coming up to a boil for the pasta, I was able to prep the rest of the ingredients.  Then once the pasta was cooked, all I had to do was toss every thing together and drizzle it with some balsamic glaze.  Before I knew it, I had a delicious bowl of goodness.

    I love a caprese salad but sometimes I crave a little more to it. Just like this amazing recipe that beefs it up with the addition of the tortellini! I am afraid I might eat this entire batch!
