    • Total time: Ready in 10 minutes 10 minutes

    Serves: 4


    2 garlic cloves
    80g fresh basil leaves
    grated zest of 1 essential Waitrose Lemon
    essential Waitrose Grated Parmigiano Reggiano
    3 tbsp olive oil
    a pinch of dried chilli flakes (optional)

    Place the garlic in a mini chopper with the basil leaves (you may need to do 2 batches to fit in all the basil), lemon zest and a handful of cheese.

    Whizz until finely chopped then add the olive oil and whizz again to make the pesto paste. Season and add a pinch of dried chilli flakes (optional).

    Cook the tortelloni in a large pan of boiling water for 2-3 minutes until tender – keep the heat on a gentle simmer. Drain the pasta and toss with the pesto and the toasted pine kernels.
