Creamy Basil Pesto Cheese Tortellini Pasta

with Crispy Bacon and Corn

We love sweet corn all year long here at HelloFresh. This dish combines some of our favourite pairings. Creamy basil pesto, sweet corn kernels and Parmesan make it feel like summer. A little sprinkle of bacon at the end brings the whole dish together!

Instructions

COOK BACON
1

Cut bacon into 1-inch pieces. Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat. When hot, add bacon to the dry pan. Cook, stirring occasionally, until crispy, 7-9 min.** Remove the pan from heat. Using a slotted spoon, transfer bacon to a paper towel-lined plate. Off heat, reserve 1 tbsp bacon fat (dbl for 4ppl) in the pan, then drain and discard any excess fat.

PREP
2

Add 10 cups water and 2 tsp salt in a large pot (same amount for 4ppl). Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Meanwhile, core, then cut pepper into 1/2-inch pieces. Peel, then thinly slice shallot.

COOK TORTELLINI
3

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

Make sauce
4

While tortellini cooks, heat the same pan (with reserved bacon fat) over medium-high. When hot, add shallots and peppers. Cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 3-4 min. Season with salt and pepper. Remove pan from heat and stir in pesto, sour cream, corn, and reserved pasta water. 

FINISH PASTA
5

Add creamy basil pesto sauce, half the bacon and half the Parmesan to the pot with tortellini. Stir until combined and tortellini is coated.

FINISH AND SERVE
6

Divide pasta between bowls. Sprinkle remaining bacon and remaining Parmesan over top.
