Tortellini Cesar Salad

1 package of  cheese tortellini

1 cup mayo
½ cup milk
½ cup Parmesan cheese grated + extra
3 tbsp lemon juice
2 garlic cloves minced
1 head of romaine lettuce torn or cut into bite size pieces
halved cherry tomatoes - optional

Cook tortellini to package directions
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine mayo, milk, Parmesan cheese, lemon juice and garlic: mix well.
Drain and rinse tortellini; place in large bowl.
Add lettuce and dressing, toss to coat.
Serve with extra Parmesan and croutons

i took this to a fight party last night and it was a hit.  The dressing was flavorful without being overwhelming.  It was simple enough to go with the pizza we had, and both the kids and adults ate it.  It would be good with fresh mozz balls in it also I think. I didn't add tomatoes because we don't like them, and i didn't have them, but i think it would give the salad more color and make it prettier :o)
