    I doubled the recipe, but there seems to be too much salad dressing. I've stirred it all around and it seems to be too much. Will this absorb more as it chills in the fridge, or should I cook up some more tortellini to add to it?

    I'd add some more tortellini.

    Cooking is art not science so things will not always be perfect depending on types of ingredients, etc. Frequently doubling a recipe you will find that it is not necessary to double all the ingredients. Pasta definitely absorbs liquid as it sits. If you find after "resting" it is to watery then just use less next time or use more pasta as suggested.

    Well I ended up leaving it as is. DH thought it seemed fine. I thought maybe some of the liquid would absorb and feared that if I added more pasta it might seem dry later. It turned out well, I think. I probably could've added more veggies and tortellini though and it would've been fine.
