  • 1 10-12 ounce package fresh cheese tortellini
  • 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
  • ¼ small red onion cut into 1 inch pieces
  • ¼ cup grape tomatoes
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoons Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • 2 ounces Parmesan cheese freshly shaved
  • 12 ounces marinara suace


  • Cook tortellini. 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.
  • Preheat. Set your grill to medium-high heat (around 400-450 degrees). Close the lid and allow the grill to preheat while you prepare your skewers.
  • Assemble all of the ingredients for the skewers on a large cutting board or work surface. Alternate skewering the tortellini, sausage, and vegetables until all of the skewers have been filled.
  • Season. Drizzle the skewers with olive oil. Season with salt, black pepper, and Italian seasoning.
  • Grill. Place the skewers directly on the hot grill grates and cook for approximately 10-12 minutes, turning as necessary. While the skewers cook, warm the marinara sauce in a small saucepan.
  • Add cheese. Shave the Parmesan cheese directly over the hot skewers on the grill and allow to cook for 1-2 additional minutes.
  • Serve. Transfer to a serving platter and serve immediately with the warmed marinara sauce. Top with additional Parmesan cheese, if desired.
