This wonderful kale pesto is made more substantial with white beans, served over tender cheese tortellini. Buying pre-made tortellini really saves time too, making this perfect for a weeknight dinner!

Author's Notes

To roast garlic, cut the top off to reveal the tops of the cloves. Drizzle the top with olive oil and a sprinkle of salt, then wrap it in foil. Roast it in a 350 degrees F (176 degrees C) oven for an hour, then refrigerate it and use it as needed! It keeps for a long time.

Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Bring a pot of water to a boil. White it comes to a boil, prepare the pesto.
Step 2
Add the Kale (3 cup), White Beans (1 can), Chopped Pecans (1/2 cup), Garlic (4 clove), Grated Parmesan Cheese (1/4 cup), Salt (1 pinch), and Ground Black Pepper (1 pinch). Run it until it becomes pasty.
Step 3
Keep it running while you slowly pour in the Olive Oil (1/2 cup) until you have a lovely sauce.
Step 4
The water should be boiling at this point. Salt it generously, then cook the Cheese Tortellini (20 ounce) until tender, about 2 minutes. Reserve a 1/4 cup of the cooking water, then drain the tortellini.
Step 5
Toss the tortellini and pesto together, then pour in the water and an extra drizzle of olive oil and stir them in to loosen everything up.
Step 6
Serve immediately with extra parmesan on top if you want. Enjoy!
