Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

Put a large pot of salted water on to boil for the pasta. 

Place the pancetta in a heavy skillet over medium heat and cook until the pancetta is almost crispy. Add the onions and sauté until the onions are translucent. Then add the strained tomatoes, salt, pepper, tarragon, and garlic granules and simmer for about 20 minutes. 

Step 2

Once the sauce has been simmering for 10 to 15 minutes, cook the pasta to package instructions. 

When the pasta is done drain it well and return it to the pot. Drizzle with olive oil, toss gently and set aside. 

Step 3

When the sauce has simmered 20 minutes pour it over the tortellini and mix well. Serve the tortellini into 4 shallow bowls. Scatter the pistachios overtop and sprinkle generously with fresh grated Parmesan, then sit down and enjoy the quick and easy (but crazy tasty!) dinner that you have prepared!
