Perfect Blend recipe

Tortellini with Broccoli Pesto

Warning: this recipe was designed for a Vitamix high-performance blender. To avoid damage if you’re using a non-Vitamix blender please refer to your blender owner’s manual for operation guidelines.

A twist on the traditional basil pesto, broccoli and parsley make this pesto just as green and equally tasty.
