Tortellini, Mozzarella, and Tomato Skewers
from Colleen's Kitchen
Makes as much as you want!
equal amounts of:
frozen cheese-filled tortellini
cherry or grape tomatoes
bocconcini (small mozzarella, usually found around the deli section in the olive bar)
your favorite Italian dressing or vinaigrette
chopped fresh basil
Bring a pot of salted water to a boil and add tortellini. Cook 4-5 minutes until al dente, or as directed on the side of the package. Drain tortellini and rinse with cold water.
Cut each tomato and bocconcini in half. Combine cooled (important so you don't melt the cheese!) tortellini and tomato and bocconcini halves in a large, sealable container. Liberally add dressing of choice. Seal and marinate 4-24 hours in the refrigerator, shaking several times so that dressing is equally distributed.
Assemble each skewer: tortellini, tomato, bocconcini, tortellini, tomato, bocconcini. Sprinkle with chopped basil and serve.
