Before starting, wash and dry all produce.When cooking the pasta, starch is released into the water ; that starchy pasta water helps to thicken this sauce, without adding extra ingredients. Add 10 cups water and 2 tsp salt in a large pot. (NOTE: Use same for 4 ppl.) Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. While waiting for the water to boil, core, then cut peppers into 1/2-inch pieces. Peel, then thinly slice shallot.


Add tortellini to the boiling water. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, 2-3 min. Reserve 1/4 cup pasta water (dbl for 4 ppl). Drain and return the tortellini to the same pot, off heat.


Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp butter (dbl for 4 ppl), then the shallots and peppers. Cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 3-4 min. Season with salt and pepper. Remove pan from heat and stir in veggies, pesto, sour cream, corn, and reserved pasta water.


Add creamy basil pesto sauce with the veggies and half the Parmesan to the pot with tortellini. Stir until combined and tortellini are coated with the sauce.


Divide pasta between bowls. Sprinkle over the remaining Parmesan.
