    OrmondEater's Note:

    I got this recipe from an issue of Food & Wine. It is fast, easy and all the ingredients can be kept on hand for a long time. The exception is the parsley. It is one of our all time favorites.

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a food processor or blender, pulse the walnuts, parsley, garlic, Parmesan, oil, salt, and pepper to a coarse puree.
    2. 2
      Cook the tortellini, in a large pot of salted water*, until just done. The cooking time will depend on the brand you use (mine takes 8 minutes and you could use the fresh you find refrigerated in the grocery. I don't reccomend the dried tortellini) Reserve 1/2 cup of the pasta water. (Don't forget this! It is easy to do).
    3. 3
      Drain the tortellini. Toss with 1/4 cup of the reserved pasta water, the walnut pesto, and the butter. Mix until the butter melts.
    4. 4
      If the pasta seems dry, add more of the reserved pasta water. Sprinkle with additional Parmesan and pass more at the table.
    5. 5
      *The water should be as salty as a broth.
