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.

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!

Super easy and quick, but next time I would use boxed tortellini instead of fresh. The fresh ones tended to slide off the toothpicks.

I did not use tomatoes as this was for a kid’s spots banquet. Instead I put tortellini, a piece of folded pepperoni and a rectangle of. Mozzarella all on one toothpick. It was a perfect mouthful...

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

Fast, easy, and tasty

I added some chicken to make it a more rounded diner, Great fun to eat. Everyone loved 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 !
