About This Recipe
"An interesting twist for a dinner party canapé, tangy tortellini mingling with the delicate flavours of sun-blushed tomatoes and olives."
shop-bought fresh tortellini
( any colour or flavour)
black olives, pitted
fresh ground black pepper
For the marinade
grated lemon, zest of
extra virgin olive oil
freshly ground salt and black pepper
Cook the tortellini in boiling salted water according to the packet instructions. Once they are cooked, drain and rinse well under cold water to cool them down quickly. Place in a bowl and mix with the marinade ingredients. This can now be covered and left to marinate for about 30 minutes.
Once marinated, thread one tortellini, a sun-blushed tomato and an olive onto each skewer. Season with a twist of black pepper and arrange on a platter. Cover and keep at room temperature until needed.
