16 Skewers

For variety, make an assortment of colored tortellini with different fillings. Kids will get a kick out of sliding the pieces onto the skewers; for very young children, snap off the sharp end of each skewer beforehand.

How to Make It

Prep time: 5 Minutes
Cooking time: About 25 Minutes

Cook the tortellini according to the package directions; drain, and then let them cool to room temperature. Thread 3 of the cooked tortellini and 3 pieces of pepper onto each skewer, alternating pieces and colors.

On a plate or cutting board, use a pastry brush or a small, clean paintbrush to brush each tortellini lightly with olive oil.

Sprinkle parmesan cheese over each skewer (hold it over a bowl to catch any cheese that doesn't stick). Arrange the finished skewers on a platter and serve.

How kids can help: All steps except the cooking and draining of tortellini.
