On foil-lined baking sheet, broil red and green peppers, turning occasionally, until blackened, about 15 minutes. Let cool enough to handle. Peel off blackened skins; core and seed. Cut into 3/4-inch (2 cm) pieces.

Meanwhile, in large pot of boiling water, cook tortellini until tender, 8 to 10 minutes; drain and set aside.

Meanwhile, in small skillet, toast pine nuts over medium-high heat, shaking pan constantly, until golden, about 3 minutes; set aside.

In large bowl, whisk together vinegar, oil, garlic, thyme, mustard, salt, pepper and hot pepper flakes. Stir in roasted peppers, tortellini and pine nuts. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate in airtight container for up to 2 days.)
