Want a snack that goes beyond the usual fried cheese sticks? Parboil some cheese-filled tortellini, dust them in Parmesan cheese, then bread and deep-fry them for an appetizer that's perfect for the big game or any other celebration with friends and family.
The recipe below may seem out of the ordinary, but after just one bite, you'll want to make it time and time again. Pair it with ice-cold soda or beer and some warm marinara sauce for a treat that will please meat-eaters and vegetarians alike.
Tip: If you don't have a cooking thermometer, place one tortellini in the pot. If it starts to fry immediately, the oil is ready. The oil's temperature will drop if you fry too many at once, though, so cook them in batches.
