Whether you’re into football or not, you can’t deny that the Superbowl is fun, if for no other reason than an excuse to have friends over. And of course, eat a variety of bite-sized food.

Dips, sliders, nachos, caramel corn, chili…the list goes on. Which should now include these little Tortellini Kabobs. My family is sort of bonkers over them.

I tested them out for Superbowl, but they were such a hit with the family, that I made them again the next day. And then again the following week. We’ll be enjoying these long after football season is over – the kids have already requested I put these in their lunch boxes. Dare I say, “Touchdown!” (I know…forgive me. It was like low hanging fruit.)

Make these! You’ll love them.

Mini Tortellini Kabobs
Makes approx. 50
Prep time: 30 minutes
Marinate: 3 hours

• 1 (8 ounce package) refrigerated cheese tortellini
• 1/2 cup Italian salad dressing
• 6 thin slices (4 ounces) provolone cheese, cut into small squares
• 50 thin slices salami
• 50 pimiento-stuffed green olives
• toothpicks

Cook tortellini according to package directions; drain and rinse in cold water. In a plastic ziploc bag, combine the tortellini and salad dressing; seal bag and refrigerate for 3 hours (or overnight.)

Drain tortellini and discard the marinade. On each toothpick, thread pasta, salami (folded in half, and then in half again), and 1-2 slices of cheese, followed by an olive. Serve and enjoy!

Stumbled across this. Nice! Fun little finger food for parties, etc.

These are SO fun, and good for so many types of events/occasions! They would be a perfect snack for a BBQ, too. The weather is getting warmer here, and so I’m all for snacks and lighter foods these days! Perfect!

What a great appetizer, those look fantastic :)

Dude. This looks awesome. What a great idea! I don’t even like olives and you’re making me want to eat it.

This is kind of like how when I made tortellini or ravioli, I could happily just stand over the pot, eating them one by one off a toothpick. Except you think I’m going to share. HA.

How is food on a stick so much more fun!?

This is so easy but I love how tasty it is and all the one bite goodness!

I have this thing about pimiento-stuffed green olives, cheese and salami ~ I literally have them at least twice a month. I never thought to add the cheese tortellini, but I think you’ve just increased my addiction! {smile}
