I bookmarked this great summer appetizer last year from my friend Marie at Proud Italian Cook. I am always looking for simple appetizer recipes for parties and this fit the bill.
They looked pretty, tasted yummy and even the kids seemed to like these simple party picks.
Marie's Tortellini Skewers:
I used 6" bamboo wooden skewers and threaded them with cooked tortellini, artichoke hearts, roasted tomato pieces, bonconcini (mozzarella balls), a basil leaf and a kalamata olive.
Marie uses sundried tomatoes and did not use olives.
How about roasted peppers? You can use any combination. You can make these ahead and they keep for a while at room temperature.
For more flavor, I drizzled some Italian dressing over the skewers before serving.
The next day, I dismantled the leftover skewers in a bowl and had an instant delicious pasta salad!
