We remodeled our patio earlier this year and it’s been so much fun having a nice outdoor space. We’ve been using our pizza oven quite a bit and it’s been nice to have a comfy place to unwind. My dream has always been to have a spot where we can have people over and everyone can kick back and relax.

As a result, we’ve been sipping on quite a bit of rosé so I was excited to learn that Black Box Wines make a rosé! Ever since I went to the Zero Waste grocery store tour, I’ve been trying to find little ways to cut down on my consumption. I was pumped to learn that Black Box Wines require a lot less energy to produce and transport so they’re a good eco-friendly pick. They’re fully recyclable and they help yield 85% less packaging waste.

This rosé would go with just about anything but I paired it with these easy antipasto skewers. I love appetizers that can be made ahead of time so I don’t have to spend a lot of time in the kitchen when we have friends over. You can make these up to a day in advance, just wait until you’re ready to serve before adding the balsamic glaze!

How to Make Antipasto Skewers

  • Cook the tortellini according to package directions then let them cool.
  • Wash and dry the tomatoes.
  • Add a tomato, tortellini, a mozzarella ball, one more tomato, and a basil leaf to each skewer.
  • Drizzle with balsamic glaze

If you can’t find small skewers, you can make mini versions on a toothpick by using just one tomato, one mozzarella ball or tortellini, and one basil leaf. These skewers paired perfectly with our rosé.

The Best Tortellini for Antipasto Skewers

I like the Buitoni Three Cheese Tortellini or the Rana tortellini. Both brands can be found in the refrigerated section of the grocery store. You can also use frozen tortellini if you prefer.

These antipasto skewers are a delicious and easy summer appetizer! They only take a few minutes to assemble and they’re a tasty snack for any day of the week!


  • 1 9oz package of cheese tortellini
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes
  • 1 cup yellow tomatoes
  • 1 cup mozzarella balls
  • A handful of fresh basil
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic glaze (see note)
  • 16 small wooden skewers


  1. Cook the tortellini according to the package directions.
  2. While the tortellini is cooking, wash and dry the tomatoes.
  3. Let the tortellini cool, then assemble the skewers.
  4. Add 1 tortellini, 1 of each tomato, 1 mozzarella ball and 1 basil leaf to each skewer.

Balsamic glaze is often sold near the balsamic vinegar. It’s a reduction of balsamic vinegar so it’s a thicker consistency and it’s slightly sweeter flavor.
