This is such a fun dinner to make in the summer.  My kids love these mini tortellini kabob bites.  Every year I grow more and more basil plants in my garden because we all love it so much.

I’ve made these and taken them in the cooler down to our neighborhood pool.  It’s great because adults and kids can enjoy snacking on these during the breaks.  My daughter LOVES to help make them.
