Ingredients

  • 400g pack Co-op spinach and ricotta tortelloni
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 15g pine nuts, lightly toasted
  • 50g Co-op sliced curly kale
  • Zest and juice of ½ lemon
  • 15g Co-op Parmigiano Reggiano, finely grated
  • 2 tbsp Co-op extra virgin olive oil

Method

  1. Bring a large pan of water to the boil and cook the tortelloni according to the pack instructions.
  2. While the pasta is cooking, make the pesto. Put the garlic in a blender with the pine nuts, kale, lemon zest and juice, and Parmigiano Reggiano, reserving a little cheese to serve.
  3. Pulse for a few seconds until combined, then add 1½ tbsp of the oil. Pulse again briefly, then set aside.
  4. Drain the pasta, reserving the water. Add the pesto and toss together with a little of the pasta water to thin out the sauce. To serve, divide the pasta between 2 bowls, drizzle with the rest of the oil and top with the remaining cheese.
