    Sear the tortellini
    In a large, high-sided pan (nonstick if possible), heat 2 tbsp of 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 cooks, small dice the tomatoes. Trim and discard the stem ends of the green beans. Mince the shallot. Pick the basil leaves off the stems. In a medium bowl, combine the diced tomatoes, vinegar, ½ the basil (roughly chop before adding), up to ¼ of the minced shallots (to taste) and 3 tbsp of olive oil; season with ¼ of the spice blend and S&P to taste.

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

    Finish the tortellini
    To the pan of tortellini, add the demi-glace and 2 cups of 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 (adding more water as necessary).
