Pumpkin with fresh Genovese 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.


250 g La Tua Pasta Tortelloni Pumpkin & Ricotta
90 g Fresh Genovese Pesto
30 g Parmigiano Reggiano

Please note that some essential ingredients may
be listed in the recipe but not included when purchasing.


In a large sauce pan add 1 litre of salted water for every 100g of pasta. For 250g of pasta add 2.5 litres of water.

Bring the water to a gentle boil and put in the Tortelloni.

Cook for 3 – 4 and a half minutes depending on preference.

Put the pesto in a pan and transfer the Tortelloni using a slotted spoon making sure that some of the starchy pasta water makes into the pan with the pesto (the starchy pasta water is the secret to getting a good coating of the Tortelloni).

Stir the pesto into the Tortelloni gently and plate and with Parmesan on top.

Buon Appetito!
