Caprese Tortellini Skewers

It’s Freaky Friday time again! This time, it is our fall edition and I am so excited to share this caprese tortellini skewers recipe from Lemoine Family Kitchen with you guys! Freaky Friday is where a bunch of bloggers are all assigned different blogs and we make a recipe from their site to share! None of us know who is assigned to our site so it ends up a fun surprise and a great way to get to know each other and our sites better! It is organized by Michaela from An Affair from the Heart and it’s so fun!

Lemoine Family Kitchen is run by Angela, a lovely mother of two boys with some fantastic recipes inspired by her Italian roots! It was really hard to choose which of her recipes to go with but I ended up choosing these caprese tortellini skewers because I am a sucker for fun appetizers and they just looked so good!

Some of her other recipes I debated about making were her asian beef and noodle soup or the slow cooker creamy tomato basil soup with tortellini.  Either of those would have been super tasty! Another one of her recipes I can’t wait to try is her sundried tomato pesto.  I think that it would be so good on these skewers instead of classic basil pesto!

I did make this my own spin on Angela’s recipe by using sundried tomatoes instead of ripe tomatoes in the recipe along with adding in pesto.  These tortellini skewers are such a delicious appetizer but also, if you skip out on the skewers, you have everything you need for a great pasta salad! Just toss all the ingredients in a bowl, mix them together, and serve!

How to make pesto tortellini skewers

Step 1 – Make pesto (optional)

You can either use pre-made pesto or whip up a batch of your favorite homemade pesto for this recipe.

Step 2 – Toss pesto with tortellini and mozzarella

Combine tortellini and mozzarella in a bowl and toss with pesto until they are well coated.

Step 3 – Make a skewer

To make a skewer, place two pieces of tortellini, one piece of mozzarella, and one piece of sundried tomato on each skewer.
