Pumpkin with fresh Genoese pesto is a lovely fresh, bright combination.  Our pumpkins are sourced from our long-term partner and friend Armando who specialises in beautiful Delica pumpkins.  Fresh pesto from a small producer is added to our hand folded tortelloni and we complete the dish with a dusting of Parmesan.  A simple to cook meal that is ready in a matter of minutes.
