  9. Recipe submitted by Ellen Moffa-Ferry from Warminster, PA. She said, “My Grandson Alex loves to eat pasta when he comes to his Mom Moms house. One day I asked him what kind of pasta he would like to have for dinner, and he replied “belly buttons!" I was not sure exactly what he meant but then he showed me the frozen cheese tortellini. This was my inspiration for making Belly Button Salad. Alex likes the “belly buttons” dipped in your dressing and sprinkled with grated cheese. He is a very picky eater, as most 3 year olds are, but he sure knows and loves the flavor of BRIANNAS Dressing on his Belly Buttons.”
