- 140g Tenderstem broccoli, cut into short lengths
Like cabbage and cauliflower, broccoli is a brassica and is sometimes known by its Italian name…
- 250g fresh tortellini
- 3 tbsp pesto (fresh if you can get it)
Pesto is a generic Italian name for any sauce made by pounding ingredients together.
- 2 tbsp toasted pine nuts
- 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
True Balsamic vinegar is an artisan product from Modena, in Emilia Romagna, Italy, and is made…
- 8 cherry tomatoes, halved
Bring a large pan of water to the boil. Add the broccoli, cook for 2 mins, then add the tortellini and cook for 2 mins, or according to pack instructions. Drain everything, gently rinse under cold water until cool, then tip into a bowl. Toss with the pesto, pine nuts and balsamic vinegar. Add the tomatoes, pack into containers and chill. Let the salad get to room temperature during the morning to get the most flavour from the tomatoes and pesto.
