    • 72

      cheese tortellini (or fresh spinach and egg tortellini)

    • 6

      Tbsp minced fresh parsley

    • ½

      cup virgin olive oil

    • ½

      cup grated Parmesan cheese

    • cup fresh lemon juice

    • 3

      cloves garlic, pressed or minced

    • Salt and pepper to taste

    Directions

    Prepare the tortellini according to package directions. Add a little fresh water to the cooked tortellini to keep them from sticking together. Thread 24 4-inch skewers with 3 tortellini each. Arrange the skewers on a platter and sprinkle with 2 Tbsp of the parsley. In a small bowl, mix together the remaining parsley, oil, Parmesan, lemon juice, garlic, salt and pepper. If desired, puree the sauce in a blender for 1 minute. With a pastry brush, brush the sauce on the tortellini. Reserve the remaining sauce to dip the skewers into when serving.
