Tortellini and Garlicky Parmesan Dip

by Permanent Posies on March 7, 2012

Garlicky Parmesan Dip

I have a favorite party dip that I have never taken to a party that I didn’t get asked several times for the recipe.  I didn’t make it up… I can’t claim it as my creation…but I have been making it for so long that I can’t remember who first told me about it. 

This is simple and quite tasty.  Be careful not to be too heavy handed with the garlic.  If you are in love with garlic, add more.  If not, add less.  For me, I normally go with 3 cloves.

Tortellini and Garlicky Parmesan Dip
  • 1 16 oz jar Kraft Parmesan Grated Cheese (must be Kraft….unless you can find something comparable in flavor)
  • 1 16 oz jar Hellman’s Mayonnaise
  • 3-6 cloves garlic
  • 1/4–1/2 lemon, juice of (amount optional)
  • 2-3 bags of frozen tortellini (depending on party size)
  1. Mix first 4 ingredients for dip.
  2. Cook the tortellini until just done. DO NOT OVERCOOK them or they won’t be good for dipping.
  3. Serve the dip and tortellini COLD.

This looks so good. Too bad hubby detests tortellini, but I could probably think of some other stuff to do with that dip. I’d love it if you stopped by my link party to share this.

So….do you use toothpicks to dip them? Tortellini seem too slippery to hold.

This dip sounds amazing! They used to sell a parm garlic dip at the store nearby and they suddenly stopped selling it. We’ve been trying to replicate it for years! We’ll have to see how this one is :)

Yumm! Garlic, parm and tortellini. What could possibly be bad about that combination? We have a lot of small gatherings where we do just snacks and hors d’oeuvres and I’m always looking for new recipes. This would be perfect! (BTW, My mother always said that when you’ve been making a recipe for a long time and 3 or more people associate that recipe with you, it’s perfectly OK to claim it as your own. LOL)

Stopping by from the party and newly following on Linky and Pinterest. Thanks for sharing this delicious dip!

Add a can or two of artichokes and bake it and you have a great artichoke dip!
