This unusual recipe is so easy to make with commonly available ingredients, yet people are very surprised and intrigued when they eat it the first time. Many believe that these are fried shrimp and are so amazed that these are tortellinis! This is an appetizer that kids and grown ups as well as vegetarians will enjoy!

This is such a great appetizer!  We used cheese tortellini, but feel free to get even more creative. Oh, and did we mention that the dipping sauce is nothing short of divine?! It is. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
