It turns out that boiling isn’t the only way to cook pasta—you can grill it, too! Refrigerated tortellini is an ideal candidate to cook over flames. You don’t need to precook it or parboil it; simply skewer it with veggies and sausage and cook over coals. The pasta ends up wonderfully crisp, and the cheesy filling gets warm and soft. If you’re using bamboo skewers, make sure to soak them in water for about 30 minutes before threading on the ingredients.
