Tortellini with Broccoli Pesto



Ingredients

bunch broccoli (about 1 pound), trimmed and cut into florets
kosher salt and black pepper
cup 
fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves
1/4 
cup 
olive oil
tablespoons 
toasted pine nuts
ounce 
Parmesan, grated (about 1/4 cup), plus more for serving
pound 
fresh or frozen cheese tortellini

Directions

  1. Cook the broccoli in a large pot of boiling salted water until crisp-tender, 2 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate to cool slightly; reserve the water for cooking the tortellini.
  2. Pulse the broccoli, parsley, oil, pine nuts, Parmesan, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper in a food processor until finely chopped, 15 to 20 seconds.
  3. Cook the tortellini according to the package directions, reserving ¾ cup of the cooking water. Drain and return the tortellini to the pot.
  4. Add the broccoli pesto and ¼ cup of the reserved cooking water and toss to combine. (Add more cooking water as needed to loosen the sauce.)
  5. Serve sprinkled with more Parmesan.
