Summery Pasta Salad

6 oz. tortellini, cooked and cooled
1 cup broccoli cooked and cooled*
1/2 cup frozen peas, thawed*
3/4 cherry tomatoes, halved
1/4 cup onion, chopped
1/4 cup parmesan cheese (you may want to have extra to sprinkle over the top when serving)
1/2 cup Italian dressing

2/3 cup mayo
2 tsp spicy brown mustard
1/2 tsp dill weed
salt and pepper to taste

Mix all salad ingredients together. *I find the easiest way to cook the peas and the brocoli is to throw them in for the last 2-3 minutes with the tortellini. Chill for 15 - 30 minutes. Mix together the ingredients for the dressing and gently stir in to salad. Chill for at least two more hours.
