- 1 onion
- 75 grams of dried tomatoes + 3 – 4 tablespoons of tomato oil
- 50 grams of roasted peppers (from the glass)

- 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan
- 1 small clove garlic
- Salt & pepper
- Oil for searing
Required kitchen gadgets, helper & preparations:

For the pesto combine 75 grams of dried tomatoes, 50 grams of roasted peppers, 3 – 4 tablespoons oil from the tomatoes, 1 tablespoon chopped almonds, 1 tablespoon of grated Parmesan & a pinch of pepper in a tall container & then puree everything with a blender until a lumpy pesto.
Cut the zucchini into small cubes. Peel onion & garlic & finely chop. Quarter or halve cherry tomatoes depending on their size. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and cook the tortellini for about 2 – 3 minutes, then use a pasta strainer to pour off the water and set tortellini aside covered with a lid.
…for the tortellini stir-fry:
Heat up a large pan adding a dash of oil, add the onions & garlic to the pan & sweat for about 2 – 3 minutes over medium heat until glassy. Next, add the zucchini cubes and gently roast for another 3 – 4 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Finally, add the cherry tomatoes, tortellini, the prepared pesto & 100 milliliters of vegetable stock to the pan, mix well until all ingredients have evenly distributed & allow the liquid to boil down almost completely.
Then remove the pan from heat, arrange the tortellini on deep plates and serve immediately. I wish you lots of fun cooking 😉
