Anti-Pasto Appetizers

READY IN: 33mins
Recipe by Small Town Cook

I made this for a Christmas party. It was a hit! Even my kids love it and they were excited to be able to help prepare it. I put down 30 minutes of prep time, but it doesn't include 4 hours for marinating.

So pretty altogether on a platter! Undercook the tortellini a little bit if you'll be marinating longer than 4 hours.
