This is such a simple appetizer to make, but is a definite crowd pleaser. It's easy to make ahead of time, and is perfect for summer when you have a surplus of basil and tomatoes!
Tortellini Caprese Skewers
Makes around 35 skewers
2 lbs. bocconcini or a ball of mozzarella, cubed
2 pints cherry tomatoes
2 lbs. tortellini (I had quite a few leftover, but 1 lb. wouldn't have been enough)
1 cup basil leaves, chiffonade
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
Thread bocconcici, tomatoes and tortellini on skewers.
Drizzle with EVOO and vinegar.
Sprinkle with basil.
Keep chilled until serving.
*For most of the skewers, my pattern was: tortellini, tomato, mozzarella, tomato, tortellini.
