Antipasto Kabobs

If you are anything like me, you get sucked into Pinterest... All. The. Time. Fun recipe ideas, craft inspirations and items that make you wish you made a million buckaroos so you could afford the "dream home" you have been pinning about! :)

Although they take a little time to construct, these kabobs are super delicious and impressive! They might add a little flair to your Superbowl gathering tomorrow :) Thank you Hungry Housewife  for this fun and tasty idea!

1 (9-oz) package 3 cheese tortellini, cooked to package directions
1 can large pitted black olives
1 (5-oz) jar green olives
2 (12-oz) containers marinated mozzarella balls (found near specialty cheeses)
30 slices of salami, cut in half
60 slices of pepperoni
1 cup Balsamic Vinaigrette salad dressing (homemade or store bought)
30 skewers, cut in half

Place cooked (and cooled) tortellini in gallon freezer bag. Pour salad dressing over top and lightly shake; marinate in refrigerator for 2-3 hours.

Drain the pasta. Place one of each item onto skewer. Can be made up to 3 hours ahead, just cover tightly with saran wrap and place in refrigerator.
