Parmesan Tortellini Bites
 
 
Ingredients
  • 1 (9-ounce) package refrigerated CHEESE TORTELLINI
  • ½ cup VEGETABLE OIL
  • 1 cup PANKO BREAD CRUMBS
  • ¼ cup PARMESAN
  • ½ cup FLOUR
  • 2 EGGS, beaten
  • ½ cup dipping sauce, marinara or alfredo
Instructions
  1. First cook tortellini according to package instructions; drain well. *I found it helpful to spread the tortellini out on a flat surface after draining. To avoid them sticking together.* Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Combine Panko and Parmesan; set aside. Begin dredging tortellini in flour, dip into eggs, then through Panko mixture, pressing to coat. Then working in bathces add tortellini to the skillet, 8 or 10 at a time, and cook until evenly golden and crispy, about 1-2 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate. Serve with dipping sauce, garnished with additional Parmesan, if desired. ENJOY!
