Irish ‘Flag’ Pasta and Veggie Platter

Irish Flag Pasta Veggie Dinner - SavvyMom

A Festive Arrangement to Get Your Irish On

If Kale Colcannon just isn’t your thing, arranging a platter of green and orange tidbits that everyone will enjoy is a fun and festive way to celebrate your Irish heritage or St. Patrick’s Day with kids.

You’ll Need

  • 2 cups tortellini
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 large carrot, peeled and sliced
  • 2 mini cucumbers, thinly sliced lengthwise
  • ¼ cup pesto

Prep and Cook

  • Bring a pot of salted water to a boil and add the pasta.
    Reduce the heat to medium and cook until the pasta floats to the top of the water.
    Drain and return to the pot. Add the olive oil and toss to combine.
  • To create the flag effect, place the tortellini in the middle of a rectangular plate or platter.
    Stack the cucumber spears on the left side of the plate and the carrot sticks on the right.
    Serve with warmed pesto, for dipping.
