Prepare tortellini according to package directions. Drain and Toss with garlic oil. Set aside to cool.

Saute the diced red pepper until it is soft and slightly charred on the edges. Remove from heat, set aside to cool.

Shred kale, shallots, and garlic using a food processor. If you don’t have a food processor then you can thinly slice the vegetables with a knife.
