|A perfect fresh summer meal!|
Fresh Fish Fanatics had Black Sea Bass for sale and we were lucky to get two great-looking steaks since Chris is only allowed to catch one fish each time his crew goes out. This is the first time we’ve had it, but definitely won’t be the last! It was firm and mild, and a perfect complement to the vegetables we paired it with. Our tomatoes are starting to come in en mass, so we used them in both dishes. They’re sweet and delicious.

Set a large pot of water to boil, and cook an 8 ounce package of Spinach Tortellini according to package directions (we used Trader Joe’s).
In a medium skillet, over medium heat, saute 3 ounces finely diced Pancetta.
When Pancetta begins to brown, add 2 Spring Onions, finely chopped, stir occasionally.
When Onion begins to soften, stir in:
2 cups chopped tomatoes (we used a variety from our garden)
1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
2 – 3 Tablespoons fresh Basil chiffonade
Pepper (you probably won’t need Salt because the Pancetta is already salty), to taste
When Tomatoes break down and begin to create the sauce, stir in 1/4 cup Cream.
Strain Tortellini and stir into sauce.
Top with shredded Parmesan Cheese, to taste.
