I had this recipe on my pinterest board FOREVER, so when we decided to do "sides" for the theme this time, I figured it was time to make these! It wasn't anything super special, but it was yummy and Brody LOVED them :)
Makes 8 Skewers
24 cheese tortellini, cooked to al dente
16 cherry tomatoes, halved
2 tbsp garlic flavored olive oil or regular olive oil
Pesto (or just buy store bought)
2 cups clean, dry basil
2 garlic cloves
1/3 cup fresh grated good Parmesan
1/4 cup toasted pine nuts
1/4 cup olive oil
Make the Pesto
Throw everything in the food processor and chop for a few minutes. Pour in 1/4 cup of good olive oil. Process until thoroughly combined.
After tortellini is cooked, toss in flavored olive oil. Then alternate tortellini and tomatoes so that there are 3 tortellini's and 2 tomato halves on each skewer. Serve at room temp or chilled.
