10 Minute Appetizer: Spinach Tortellini Christmas Wreath!

Spinach Tortellini Wreath Appetizer

I have a last minute appetizer that’s quick and easy for your Christmas or holiday entertaining, a Spinach Tortellini Wreath!

Pick up a couple of packages of tortellini from the refrigerated section of the grocery store. I used spinach tortellini that were filled with a blend of ricotta, Parmesan, and Romano cheeses.

Cook as directed on the package. Our tortellini were ready in 7 – 9 minutes.

Add them to a large platter with a small bowl of your favorite marinara sauce for dipping.

Add some grape or cherry tomatoes to decorate your tortellini Christmas wreath along with a bow.

Serve with toothpicks or wooden skewers.

A Rosemary Wreath with olives and cheese is also quick and easy and an ideal appetizer for a cruise on the S. S. Noel.

    Both foodie wreaths look great Mary! I’d have a hard time moving away from the olives:@)

    Mary, what great ideas that not only satisfy the stomach, but also appealing to the eye! I love pasta…so I will definitely try the wreath and I have a rather large rosemary bush, so I think both foodie wreaths are on the menu! Pam @everydayliving.me

    How on earth do you keep coming up with all these fantastic ideas, Mary??!! I am so glad I saw this before I headed out ONE MORE TIME to the grocery store. I will be taking at least one, if not both of these over to my daughter’s home on Christmas Day. I have the PERFECT gold rimmed round platter with a matching bowl that sits down into a well in the center.

    Thanks a billion for ALL your inspiration & for the smiles, too. “Merry Christmas to all and to all a Good Bite!” Hahahahaha!

    Mary, I don’t let you know often enough that we appreciate the inspiration on your blog. With the long hours I work these days, if I get stuck for an idea, I pop over to your blog. Love the rosemary wreath idea with the olives. Merry Christmas and Peace in the New Year.

    Now if that tortellini wreath isn’t the prettiest and easiest appetizer ever! However, the rosemary wreath is beautiful, too! Thanks for sharing your wealth of information and inspiration with us, Mary.

    Two great appetizers and beautiful presentation! My family hasn’t met an olive/cheese we didn’t love…so, rosemary wreath it is for us! Thank you, Mary!

    You could also use regular tortellini, toss them with pesto and garnish with cherry tomatoes. This would give the same effect and is also delicious and can be at room temperature. Love your blog!

    Can’t wait to make these two wreath ideas. Question…can the pasta wreath be served at room temp? I’d love to take it to a “carry-in” but worry about it not being hot. Thank you for such clever ideas. I’m rushing to sign up to follow you.

      Hi yes, room temp is fine which makes it easier! :)

Thanks for your comments~ they make my day :)
