Tortelloni with spinach-parsley sauce

Published on 16 August 2020 at 16:53

Pasta is meant to be a very simple dish with not too many ingredients. For this pasta dish I have made a creamy spinach-parsley sauce that can be made in just 5 minutes! By blanching your veggies, you can easliy mix them into a very smooth sauce. 

RECIPE (2 persons)

Ingredients:

  • 200gr spinach
  • 100gr creme fraiche
  • 15gr fresh parsley
  • 1 ts lemon juice
  • Black olives, sliced
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Store-bought tortelloni, around 125gr per person

Method:

  1. Heat a big pot of water and add a spoonful of salt. When boiling, blanch the spinach and herbs for 30 seconds until soft but still full of color! Transfer them to a sieve to drain the liquid.
  2. Squeeze out all the excess liquid and add the veggies to a blender, along with the creme fraiche, lemon juice, some salt and pepper. Mix for a couple minutes on high to make a smooth sauce. 
  3. Meanwhile cook the pre-packaged pasta according to the package. 
  4. Either mix the sauce with the pasta, or plate it like I did on the picture. Top it off with the olives and parmesan cheese. Enjoy!
