Expert Tips

To serve the tortellini as a first course instead of a cocktail appetizer, omit the skewers and toss the marinated tortellini with the tomatoes and olives. Serve the salad on a bed of shredded lettuce on individual plates.

MAKE-AHEAD TIP: Tortellini mixture can be refrigerated up to 24 hours. Just before serving, prepare kabobs as directed in recipe.
