Default Antipasto Kabobs

Found this on Taste of Home. Easy to beachify and yummy. I'm going to make them for Christmas.

Antipasto Kabobs
20 ServingsPrep: 35 min. + marinating

1 package (9 ounces) refrigerated whole wheat cheese tortellini
40 pimiento-stuffed olives
40 large pitted ripe olives
3/4 cup Italian salad dressing (no or low sugar)
40 thin slices turkey pepperoni
Fresh parsley sprigs, optional

Cook tortellini according to package directions; drain and rinse in
cold water. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the
tortellini, olives and salad dressing. Seal bag and turn to coat;
refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight.
Drain and discard marinade. For each appetizer, thread a stuffed
olive, folded pepperoni slice, tortellini, ripe
olive and parsley sprig if desired on a toothpick or short skewer.
Yield: 40 appetizers.

P.S. I think it would be good to add some veggies also to the marinade - pearl onions, carrot chunks, mushrooms...
Cherry tomatoes and provolone cheese chunks would be good too, but I wouldn't add them to the marinade.
Life's a journey, not a destination.
It's easier to stay on plan than to get back on plan.

Thanks for this one, Schmoodle, what a great looking recipe! I'm going to make it for one of our rescheduled holiday parties, too, and will make some without the pepperoni for the vegetarians in the family.
