Make sure to REPIN this recipe 🙂 Thanks!

I cannot tell you how much fun these bites were to make — I personally love Tortellini — I buy the fresh pasta kind a few times a month ( it is perfect to serve for dinner on a night that I do not want to cook ( though I always try and make the sauce fresh – usually pesto or Alfredo

My family loved this recipe – especially my mom — This snack was eaten up in under 30 minutes FLAT

I love when I cook something and there are no leftovers 🙂

Sadly this recipe is SUPER un -gluten Free friendly – it is basically gluten pasta – covered in gluten covered in even more gluten ( there really is no way around it – sniffles)

I decided to fry these bites in peanut oil – I personally love frying in peanut oil – but use what works for you 🙂

Eric decided on the marinara sauce we used – no one seemed to like it much though – if you know of a good marinara sauce ( jarred) – let me know in the comment section 🙂
