"What a great idea to use the tortellini - I am making this for a Valentine's day party and I love that you can make it ahead of time - great idea"

"These kabobs were good. Using the tortellini was a great idea! It was a little time consuming and slippery because of the oil, but I t went over well."

"Easy, filling and pretty! You can pretty much use what you have on hand. I used tortellini, pepperoni, grape tomatoes, black olives, basil, chunks of pepper jack cheese and everyone liked it! Zucchini chunks would be a good addition too."

"I made these to bring to a pizza party (hosts were grilling pizza-yum!) and they were a hit. I waited until the last minute to find a recipe so I only marinated for about 15 minutes but they were still yummy. I don't like hard salami so I substituted Genoa slices. I also used the small pepperoni slices that come bagged. They fit perfectly on some vintage (nice way of saying stored at my Grandmother's house for 30 years) plastic 4" drink picks. This is a keeper!"
