Preparation

Cook the tortellini according to package instructions, adding the green beans and tortellini to the pot at the same time. While the pasta is cooking, make an ice water bath: Dissolve the 1 tablespoon kosher salt in the warm water in a large bowl. Add 4 cups each ice and water and reserve. In a large bowl combine the pesto and the water. Drain the pasta, cool in the ice water bath for 2 minutes, then drain again and transfer the tortelloni to the bowl. Add the provolone, salami, peppers, artichokes, and olives and toss to incorporate. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
