Cheese on Cheese Tortellini

with Bocconcini, Zucchini & Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto

Cooking time

20 minutes




840 /serving

Cheese on the inside, cheese on the outside. We had the daring idea of pairing our stuffed-to-bursting fresh tortellini with morsels of pillowy yet firm bocconcini for extra decadence. Even the playing field with vegetable content, both fresh and preserved: ripe tomato and garlic-sautéed zucchini have a blast alongside roasted pepper at this pasta party. Leave it to sun-dried tomato pesto to tie it all together with a big red bow.

We will send you:

  • 30ml Sun-dried tomato pesto
  • 1 Tomato
  • 1 Zucchini (green, yellow or heirloom)
  • 1 Roasted pepper
  • 350g Fresh three-cheese tortellini (contains lipase)
  • 30g Vegetable demi-glace
  • 30g Mini bocconcini
  • 1 Garlic clove
  • 7.5g Bell Pepper & Olive spices (garlic, red bell pepper, dried black olives, basil, oregano, salt, parsley, lemon, sunflower oil, black pepper)

Contains: Eggs, Milk, Cashews, Wheat

Sauté the vegetables
In a large pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Sauté ½ the garlic, 30 sec. to 1 min., until fragrant. Add the zucchini and sauté, 3 to 5 min., until tender and beginning to brown; season with ½ the remaining spices and S&P. Add the roasted pepper and sauté, 1 to 2 min., until warmed through. Transfer to a plate and keep warm. Reserve the pan.

Boil the pasta
Meanwhile, add the pasta to the pot of boiling water; stir gently to separate. Boil, stirring occasionally, 4 to 6 min., until al dente. Reserving ½ cup cooking water (double for 4 portions), drain and toss with a drizzle of oil to prevent sticking.

Make the sauce
In the reserved pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Sauté the tomato and remaining garlic, 1 to 2 min., until fragrant. Add the pesto, demi-glace, reserved cooking water, remaining spices and S&P. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 min., until thickened.
