Skewered Tricolor Tortellini Recipe at
Bring a large saucepan of salted water to a boil. Add the tortellini and cook until the tortellini is tender. Drain.

Combine all the dressing ingredients in a jar and shake vigorously.

Arrange the salad greens on individual serving plates. Drizzle with some dressing.

Heat the butter in a small saucepan. Stir in the garlic and cook for 1 minute. Stir in the cream, parmesan, parsley and basil. Cook for 1 minute. Add the drained tortellini to the pan and stir to coat the tortellini thoroughly. Set aside for 5 minutes to cool slightly.

TO SERVE: Thread the tortellini onto wooden skewers. Serve on individual salad plates, allowing 2-3 skewers per person. Scatter with Parmesan shavings.
