Instructions

Prep
1

Before starting, preheat the oven to 450˚F.Wash and dry all produce. Add 10 cups water and 2 tsp salt to a large pot (use same for 4 ppl). Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Meanwhile, peel, then finely chop shallot. Halve tomatoes. Zest lemon, then cut into wedges. Peel, then mince or grate garlic.

Cook chicken and tortellini
2

Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. While the pan heats, pat chicken dry with paper towels. Season with salt and pepper. When the pan is hot, add 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then chicken. Pan-fry until golden-brown, 1-2 min per side. Transfer chicken to an unlined baking sheet. Roast in the middle of the oven until cooked through, 8-10 min.** Carefully wipe the pan clean. Add tortellini to the boiling water. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, 2-3 min. Reserve 1/2 cup pasta water (dbl for 4 ppl), then drain tortellini.

Toast pine nuts

Meanwhile, heat the same pan over medium. When hot, add pine nuts to the dry pan. Toast, stirring often, until golden-brown, 4-5 min. (TIP: Keep your eye on pine nuts so they don't burn!) Transfer pine nuts to a plate. Set aside.

Start sauce

Heat the same pan over medium. When hot, add 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then shallots. Cook, stirring occasionally, until shallots soften, 2-3 min Add tomatoes and garlic. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tomatoes are tender, 2-3 min.

Finish sauce
5

Increase heat to medium-high, then add pesto and reserved pasta water. Cook, stirring occasionally, until sauce thickens slightly, 2-3 min. Season with salt and pepper. Add tortellini, spinach, lemon zest, half the Parmesan and 1 tbsp butter (dbl for 4 ppl). Remove the pan from heat. Stir until spinach wilts, 1-2 min.

Finish and serve
