Toasted Tortellini

Toasted Tortellini by Natalie Paramore

This is definitely a cravable and easy appetizer you can throw together before any party or get together! Bonus all you have to do bake these! I included a recipe for a homemade, pesto-y dipping sauce but you can buy a jar at the store making this super easy, peasy! No excuses this summer, have some friends over for a get together!
