I became aware of these little brochettes (skewers) when working for a caterer. They are completely flexible in terms of ingredients, they are inexpensive, they can be made ahead, they are filling and easy to eat. They’re cute too!Basically, all you need to do is:
- Follow package directions and boil your tortellini until al dente (done but firm enough to be skewered) then drain. (Tortellini will puff up and bob to the surface of the water in your cooking pot when they are ready).
- Marinate them in the Pinot Noir Vinaigrette recipe below for 4 to 24 hours.
- Drain the tortellini from marinade and skewer with your choice of ingredients like salami, black olives, pimento stuffed olives, artichoke hearts, cherry tomatoes, caper berries, Pepperoncini - you get the picture.
- When you have your cute little brochettes assembled and ready to serve, drizzle withMcEvoy Ranch Aged Balsamic Vinegar.It is the perfect balance for all the flavors with a rich, bright finish.
