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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook tortellini according to directions on package. Drain well and cool completely.
  2. Place tortellini and olives in bowl. Pour in dressing and mix. Marinate at least 4 hours (the longer it marinates, the stronger the flavor).
  3. Drain tortellini and olives well.
  4. Cut salami into quarters.
  5. Cut pepperoni in half.
  6. Cut 40 small chunks of cheese
  7. On a toothpick put: 1 olive, 1 salami, 1 tortellini, 1 pepperoni, and one chunk cheese.
  8. Repeat process until all is used up.
  9. Refrigerate until ready to use.

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

We made this for my daughter's wedding reception and everyone LOVED them! I will make these again and again!

Made these last night. . .cheated a bit. Didn't marinate anything. Just took kebob scewers and cut them in half with scissors. On each one, strung 1 piece salami (folded in fours), 1 small fresh mozarella ball, 1 chicken tortellini, and 1 pre-marinated green large fancy olive (from the olive bar at the grocery store). EXCELLENT!!!!! I am sure they would be even better if I'd had time to marinate the stuff :) I just made these again. This time I used provolone cheese, pepperoni, roasted red pepper, green olives, and cheese tortellini. Topped them off with pesto for serving. YUM.
