  • To roast the vegetables: preheat the oven to 425°F (220°C).
  • In a medium bowl, combine mushrooms, tomatoes, olive oil, pressed garlic, salt and pepper.
  • Transfer the mixture onto a baking sheet lined with silicone mat or foil. Bake for 15-20 minutes until tender.
  • To cook tortellini: meanwhile, bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add salt and tortellini, and cook according to package directions, for about 8-10 minutes. Drain the water.

Notes

Note 1: This's my go-to homemade basil pesto recipe. But you can also store-bought pesto as well. My favorite is Giovanni Rana pesto.
