Tortellini Antipasto Kebabs

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.

Ready In:
1hr 5mins
Serves:
Units:

ingredients

  • 1 package frozen cheese tortellini
  • 1 package sliced pepperoni
  • 1 jar black olives
  • 1 jar pitted green olives
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cheese (of your choice, I use the white pepperjack for a bit of heat)
  • 1 bottle Italian dressing
  • 1 box toothpick (the kind with the handles)

directions

  • Prepare frozen tortellini according to package directions.
  • Drain and cool.
  • Get out a plastic bowl to store the kebabs.
  • Cut your block of cheese into small cubes.
  • On each toothpick, place 1 tortellini, 1 black olive, 1 block of cheese, 1 slice of pepperoni (may cut in half or fold if too large), and 1 green olive.
  • You can vary the order in which you place the ingredients.
  • Place all of the toothpicks in the container and pour the Italian dressing over all.
  • Cover and refrigerate overnight to marinate.
  • When ready to serve, take them out of the container and lay them on a pretty lettuce lined platter.

    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!

    These are terrific! I used cubed pepperoni and cubed provolone and I marinated half in zesty Italian and half in a Greek vinaigrette. What a perfect party snack!

    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 are wonderful. I made them last year during the holidays. Just used tortellini, black olive and cubed summer sausage or tortellini, black olive and a cheese cube. I didn't marinate (but it's a great idea) Used Italian dressing as a dipping sauce

    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".
