Ingredients
  • 1 package fresh cheese tortellini (10-12 oz)
  • 4 precooked Italian sausage links diagonally cut into 1/4 in slices
  • 1 small yellow squash sliced into rings
  • 1 small zucchini sliced into rings
  • 1/4 small red onion cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 1/4 cup grape tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp cracked black pepper
  • 8 bamboo or metal skewers
  • 2 oz Parmesan cheese freshly shaved
  • 12 oz marinara suace
Instructions
  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Immerse the tortellini in the boiling water for 1-2 minutes, then drain and pat dry.
  2. Set your grill to medium-high (around 400-450 degrees). Close the lid and allow the grill to preheat while you prepare your skewers.
  3. Assemble all of the ingredients for the skewers on a large cutting board or work surface.
  4. Alternate skewering the tortellini, sausage and vegetables until all of the skewers have been filled.
  5. Drizzle the skewers with the olive oil. Season with the salt, black pepper, and Italian seasoning.
  6. Place the skewers directly on the hot grill grate and cook for approximately 10-12 minutes, turning as necessary. While the skewers cook, warm the marinara sauce in a small saucepan.
  7. Shave the Parmesan cheese directly over the hot skewers on the grill and allow to cook for 1-2 additional minutes.
  8. Transfer to a serving platter and serve immediately with the warmed marinara sauce. Top with additional Parmesan cheese, if desired.
