I'm sure many of you will be busy celebrating in the next couple of weeks! Our social life is fairly non-existent, but we'll be enjoying some fun times with our families.
If you've been invited to (or are hosting) a party, these antipasto skewers are a real crowd pleaser! I first saw the idea on Pinterest and it seems as though I've been living under a rock - apparently, they've been popular for a while. The possibilities are endless, but I'll give you my "recipe". It's so easy, it's almost embarrassing.
Basically, you'll need to cook cheese-filled tortellini and marinate them overnight in balsamic vinegar salad dressing (I personally like Newman's Own, but use your favorite). Then, you'll simply skewer the marinated tortellini, a cherry tomato, a wedge of cheese, an olive, and a slice of pepperoni. That's it. I like the smaller skewers (I believe they're 8 inch).
Like I mentioned before, the possibilities are endless: various olives, cheeses, meats, vegetables, etc. I used fontina cheese, kalamata olives, and regular pepperoni.
I'll be sharing appetizer recipes this whole week - stay tuned!
