This appetizer has a short ingredient list, but is big on flavours. They come together quickly and can be prepared the day before your party if desired.
Makes: about 25-27 skewers with 3 tortellini each if you use the whole package
Time: about 10 minutes to cook pasta, assembly depends on how many you decide to make. It took me about 10 minutes to put together about 20.
You will need:
- 350g rainbow tortellini (or plain will also work)
- 3 tbsp of pesto
- seasoned sundried tomatoes in oil
- bamboo skewers or toothpicks
Cook tortellini according to package directions- if using fresh tortellini, usually the boiling time is only 2-3 minutes. Do not over cook. Drain and stir in a generous 3 tbsp of pesto. Let cool completely. This part can be done the day before if desired.
Slide a tortellini, piece of sundried tomato, tortellini, piece of sundried tomato and tortellini onto wooden or bamboo skewers. Repeat. That’s it. You’re done.
These can be prepped the day before and stored in an airtight container overnight if needed. I usually serve these cold, though they are certainly good heated.
