    yooper's Note:

    I made these for my annual Academy Awards party last year! They were a hit! A bit tedious and time consuming, but you make them the day before you serve. Not exactly sure on the actual servings, but 48 kebabs sounds about right.

      When I read this recipe, I loved the idea of it. The flavor is great and the combination of ingredients is really good. I did have difficulty with the tortellini coming off the toothpicks. It wasn't overcooked however I didn't have the toothpicks with the handles; just long ones. Maybe that was part of the problem. I served them for a party and they were a hit. I'll do them again. Thanks for the great idea!

      These were just the right thing for my get together. I'm always looking for something different and this was it! Since I had lots to choose from I had some left over. I took everything off the kebob and threw it in a dish to have as a side dish two days later. I wasn't happy with the cheese by then so would recommend they all be eaten or separate the cheese from the rest of the bunch because it get "soggy".

      Thanks for the idea! I used packaged refrigerated tortellini that came in 3 colors, marinated greek olives (purple & green), regular pepperoni that I folded in half, and cubed cheddar cheese then poured the marinade from the olives over to sit in overnight. Very colorful and, although a bit time consuming, a very nice appetizer. Will make again!
