Pumpkin Tortellini with Spinach Walnut Pesto

Pumpkin Tortellini

Last weekend the time change in germany happened and so every day this week was a little challenge for me. I was happy of course to get up when it’s bright, but in the evening when I get out of the office it’s dark night already. I always feel tired when I come home, what’s realy sad, because the free and funny time of the day just starts in that moment.

Because of that it needs some overcoming for me to get to the kitchen and experiment on some recipes last week. But afterwards I’m super happy of course because I got some super nice and fresh recipes. Especially because I tried around with pumpkin again. Mr Autumn King Pumpkin! Anyway there were the delicious pumpkin soup with coconut as well as the pumpkin tarte flambee in my mains already, and as you know that the best things comes in threes, today I bring you Pumpkin Tortellini with Spinach Walnut Pesto. I tried a butternut pumpkin and I am really excited about it. The color is incredible popping and the flesh is super super creamy. For the dough of the tortellini you can use my already postet pasta dough recipe. So it’s really not to hard, to produce your own tortellini. You just need a pasta machine or a rolling pin and a form to excel the dough. I always use some tupperware or a cap, depending on the size. So have fun with it!Pumpkin Tortellini
