Mise en place
Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Halve the cherry tomatoes. Mince the garlic. Toss the bocconcini with a drizzle of olive oil; season with ½ the spice blend and S&P to taste.

Cook the pasta & peas
Add the pasta to the pot of boiling water. Cook, 5 to 8 minutes, until al dente (still slightly firm to the bite). When there are 2 minutes left, add the peas and continue to cook. Reserving ½ cup of the cooking water (double for 4 portions), drain the pasta thoroughly. Toss with a drizzle of olive oil to prevent sticking and set aside in a warm spot.

Cook the tomatoes
While the pasta cooks, in a medium pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium. Add the garlic and cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, until fragrant. Add the cherry tomatoes and cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 4 minutes, until the tomatoes begin to soften and release their juices; season with the remaining spice blend and S&P to taste.

Make the sauce
To the pan of tomatoes, add the pesto, honey, demi-glace and 2 tbsp of water (double for 4 portions); season with S&P to taste. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, until slightly reduced.

Finish & serve
To the pan of sauce, add the cooked pasta, peas and ½ the reserved cooking water. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, until the pasta is coated with the sauce (if the sauce seems dry, gradually add the remaining cooking water to achieve your desired consistency). Divide the finished pasta between your plates. Top with the bocconcini and a drizzle of olive oil. Bon appétit!
