Sear the tortellini
In a large, high-sided pan (non-stick if possible), heat 2 tbsp butter and a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high. Add the tortellini and cook, stirring frequently, 10 to 12 minutes, until golden brown.

Mise en place
While the tortellini browns, small-dice the tomatoes. Trim and discard the stem ends of the string beans. Mince the shallot. Pick the basil leaves off the stems. In a medium bowl, make the bruschetta by combining the diced tomatoes, red wine vinegar, ½ the basil (roughly chop before adding), up to ¼ of the shallots (to taste) and 3 tbsp olive oil; season with ¼ of the spice blend and S&P to taste.

Toast the almonds
Heat a large pan on medium. Add the almonds and toast, 3 to 5 minutes, until lightly browned and fragrant. Transfer immediately to a bowl; season with S&P to taste. Reserve the pan.

Cook the string beans
In the same pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high. Add the string beans to the pan and cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, until beginning to soften. Add the remaining shallots and 1 tbsp butter; season with ⅓ of the remaining spice blend and S&P. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, until the shallots and string beans begin to brown. Transfer to a plate and set aside in a warm spot.

Finish the tortellini
To the pan of tortellini, add the demi-glace and 2 cups water; season with the remaining spice blend and S&P to taste. Bring the water to a boil, then lower the heat. Cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, 4 to 5 minutes, until the water has been absorbed and the tortellini are tender. If the water is absorbed yet the tortellini are still too firm, add more water and continue simmering.

Plate your dish
Divide the tortellini between your bowls. Top with the bruschetta and remaining basil (tear with your hands before adding). Serve the string beans on the side. Garnish the string beans with the toasted almonds and Parmesan. Bon appétit!
