1 1/2 cups mixed pitted olives
1 cup (5 ounces) chopped pepperoni
1 cup (5 ounces) chopped sopressata
1 cup mozzarella pearls
1 cup (5 ounces) chopped sharp provolone cheese
3/4 cup sliced roasted red peppers
1/4 red onion, diced
8 whole pepperoncini peppers, optional
6 fresh basil leaves, sliced into thin ribbons
For the dressing:

1/4 cup red wine vinegar
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon dried oregano
Pinch of red pepper flakes

Cook the tortellini in salted water according to package instructions, until al dente. Strain and rinse with cold water to prevent sticking.
Add the tortellini and remaining pasta salad ingredients to a large bowl. Set aside.
In a large jar or blender, combine the dressing ingredients and shake or blend until well-combined. Pour the dressing over the pasta salad and toss to evenly distribute. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
