Comforting and fresh, this pesto tortellini is an ideal dish for serving to friends and family (or just to yourself!). You'll love the combination of bright basil, rich walnuts, and irresistibly nutty Parmesan cheese in this pesto sauce. Yes, this tortellini with pesto uses walnuts instead of pine nuts. This swap makes your shopping list that much easier to handle. Add in a package of premade cheese tortellini, and your dinner just got easy as well as elegant (and delicious). Enjoy this warm and cheesy pasta recipe!

From the Chef: Some days you eat curled up on the sofa watching television. Other days you set the table properly and light candles. This meal works for both scenarios. It can be dressed up or dressed down and will be your new go-to no matter the occasion. I like to use walnuts in my pesto instead of the traditional pine nuts because they are easier to find and offer a nuttier, heartier flavor.

I love pasta in pesto and I usually use penne. There's just something in the penne shell which makes eating pasta in pesto so exciting. Nevertheless whatever shell is used for pasta like this Pesto Tortellinin makes me crave for pasta in pest. Cheers!

My mouth was watering. just reading this Perfect Pesto Tortellini recipe, so you know I had to make it. I am so glad I did, for a number of reasons. It is so easy to make, and filled with flavor. I also love the use of walnuts, instead of pine nuts...makes it more budget friendly. There is nothing better than homemade pesto.
