Cook for about 4 minutes, until pasta is just tender and the tortellini are floating like buoys.

Drain tortellini, then cool the cooked pasta by spreading them out on a large plate or a baking sheet in a single layer.

Coarsely chop arugula or baby spinach.

Mix together chopped artichoke hearts, roasted red pepper and red onion.

Chop garlic, then add salt to it and mash it into a paste with the flat of your knife.

Transfer garlic paste to a small bowl and add lemon zest, lemon juice and vinegar to it.

Whisk in oil, thyme and pepper.

Transfer pasta and sun-dried tomatoes to the salad.

Dress salad and gently toss.
