Pesto Tortillini

 Pesto Tortillini

Pesto Tortillini


1/2 lb tortellini with your favorite filling

one avocado

one pint cherry tomatoes (halved)

3 slices bacon

1/2 a small onion

olive oil

3-4 tablespoons heavy cream

2 tablespoons pesto


Chop up the bacon to small pieces and fry up until crisp. Blot off the fat and set aside.

Boil tortellini as directed and drain. (I find that spinach & ricotta or mushroom & gruyère filled tortellini work the best.)

Dice the onion and sweat in a pan with some olive oil until translucent.

Add the bacon, tortellini, pesto and cream (as needed). Stir well until pesto covers the tortellini evenly. If you work fast all the ingredients should still be warm, which helps spread the pesto paste.

Add the avocado and some tomatoes and mix carefully so that you don't destroy the avocado.
