Pinterest Test Kitchen #30 ~ Tortellini Skewers

Sometimes recipes can be complicated, either requiring many ingredients or steps. Other times, however, it’s so simple that the recipe is nothing more than a single picture. There should be room for both in your cookbook or recipe box but man, do I love an easy and tasty throw together recipe.

We have people over a lot and food is a central theme to our gatherings. Usually everyone brings something so it’s not like the burden to feed everyone falls just on our family. This is nice because it means I have the chance to experiment and use our friends as guinea pigs try new things.

Saturday was just such an occasion. We made ham and cheese sliders and a yummy dessert that I’ll share with you next week. Today, though, I am going to share one of those so-simple-all-you-need-to-see-is-the picture recipes.

 Pasta Salad Skewers
What you’ll need:
one package tortellini, prepared according to package directions and cooled
fresh spinach
grape tomatoes
bell peppers, chopped 
skewers (we used the minis)
What you’ll do:
Assemble by placing one of each ingredient on the skewer. 
Chill until ready to serve.

Like I said, we used the little mini skewers and they looked really pretty. It’s a simple but fancy looking appetizer with a nice flavor. You could also add a pesto dipping sauce too.

  1. I make virtually the same thing! I use black olives instead of the peppers, and I drizzle them with Italian dressing. Always a hit.I love how vibrant your photos are, Marty…really beautiful!


  2. Thanks, Dina! I will have to swap out peppers for olives on some for my husband…he eats them 🙂 Another friend mentioned throwing them on the grill for a few minutes, too.


  3. Such a great idea! Pinning :))Thank you for the sweet comment you left on my blog today…I tried before to enable the reply feature so I could reply, but it messed everything up so I undid it. Someday I'll figure it out 🙂
