These pasta salad skewers are excellent for parties, as they come together in no time. Kids will love them, but for a group of adults, feel free to add stronger flavours, like halved olives or morsels of blue cheese.

  • Prep time 15 minutes
  • Total time 25 minutes
  • Portion size 20 servings

Ingredients

  • 125 g fresh cheese-filled tortellini (about 40)
  • 1/3 cup prepared pesto (such as PC Splendido Basil Pesto)
  • 10 red or yellow cherry tomatoes , halved
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic glaze (such as PC Glaze With Balsamic Vinegar of Modena) (optional)
  • 8 large fresh basil leaves , thinly sliced

Method

In saucepan of boiling salted water, cook tortellini according to package instructions; drain. In large bowl, toss tortellini with pesto. Spread out on baking sheet to cool, about 10 minutes.
