WHAT A FUN PICNIC FOOD and easy tooand maybe even gourmet? nah, that would be asking tooo much.
I knew when #1 twin came to town we would be totally too busy to cook. I also knew that we would go to the 'beach' (up here in the pacific Northwest that term is used loosely because you can bet the weather will be cold, and rainy and overcast)
These can look as fancy as you want, (for fancy you'd use a beautiful plate) but they are so easy and so delish! You could also make this as a fun appetizer for a dinner party (you can make it ahead and just pull it out of the fridge!)
I saw this on Hungry Housewife but changed a few things to suit our palate.
The possibilities are endless.. you can get as creative as you wish. The amounts of each ingredient depends on how many people you are planning to serve. (we had left overs and they were GREAT to take to work the next couple of days.. I love me some salami)
You will need to prepare the tortellini:
Cook the tortellini according to package directions. Then pour on your Italian Salad Dressing and marinate for a few hours or overnight. When the tortellini has been marinated for the appropriate time, it's time to skewer.
Artichoke Hearts, Pickled, in oil
Cheese (I used chunks of Cheddar and Jack
Three Cheese tortellini
Italian Salad Dressing
You are only limited by your imagination
and taste buds!
