We made this pesto tortellini appetizer last weekend for the football tailgate. It was really yummy and so easy! && the options to customize it are endless.
The beauty of these is that they are filling AND easy to eat in a social setting! The pasta is substantial but it can still be eaten in one bite. Perfect for passing on trays or grabbing when you have one hand occupied with a drink.
ps, I would have had these on a prettier tray but this was what went in our travel container and I snapped the picture right as we headed out the door. Forgive me, haha!
marinated sun-dried tomatoes
