This is a great recipe! I used short bamboo skewers, and added pepperoni and mozzarella cheese to these, plus a little truffle oil! Easy to make, look good, and very tasty!

I added a little basting oil (that has basil in oil) to the pesto tortellini tomato mix before putting on picks I also used sliced pepperoni and everyone enjoyed it.

Yummy!! Rave reviews when I brought to a wedding. I did add local reindeer salami sausage to the skewers but would have been just as good without. I thought it needed more protein.

Made for a poker/book club. Grew Basil for the summer and made pesto. Perfect use of pesto. Perfect appetizer. Very east to make !

So easy and super yummy!

These were really good. Our guests loved them. Might add some olives next time.

4.5 SO EASY!!! Make ahead for a bbq and slip several on a skewer. Tooth pick is NOT enough!
