Spinach-Walnut Pesto Tortellini

This is really yummy. Thank you Rachael Ray.

It was also really easy. I just got out my food processor, chopped up 10 oz. spinach, then put a cup of walnuts in there and 2 garlic cloves, chopped them up, then switched out the chopper blade for the grater and grated some Parmesan (2/3 cup) right in there, then stirred in salt and pepper. So - didn't bother with the chicken broth, olive oil, nutmeg (although I'm sure that would be tasty) or edible flowers (come on).

I made the pesto the night before, then in the morning I cooked the tortellini, tossed it (along with a little pasta water) with the pesto and brought it to the church potluck in a 9x13. The dish was like licked clean. Winner.
