New Years is quickly approaching and if you’re anything like me, my body is missing my normal eating/drinking patterns and is ready for a little R&R (rest and relaxation!). That’s why for New Year’s Eve, we are looking forward to spending quality time at home together, doing some appetizers and no formal sit down meals. This helps us feel like we can listen to our body throughout the day and eat as we please.
So if you’re also feeling that way, I’ve got a great appetizer recipe for you! Oh, it’s incredibly simple, delicious and modifiable too. I bring you…pesto tortellini kabobs!
Recipe is below – but seriously all you need is noodles (tortellini or you could do plain noodles too!), pesto, black olives, and sun dried tomatoes. Four ingredients plus kabob sticks or toothpicks for mini kabobs.
Pesto Tortellini Kabobs
Simple and quick appetizer for parties!
- 1 package tortellini noodles I chose spinach and cheese stuffed tortellini
- 1 14.5 oz can black olives, medium Drained and rinsed
- 1 jar sun dried tomatoes, cut in half

Lick remaining pesto from spoon because you know you want to anyway 🙂
That’s all folks! See you in 2019! Oh, if you’re wondering what kind of goals I’m setting for the New Year or what my stance is on resolutions, head over to my 19 in 2019 post HERE.
