The real trick to this spring soup is the addition of store-bought tortelloni which gets dropped into the soup just before it’s ready to serve. Seek out the best quality ones you can lay your hands on and feel free to mix up the choice of greens.

Place a medium pot over a medium high heat and add the oil.
Once hot sauté the onion and celery for 4 minutes until just tender.
Add in the stock and bring to a steady simmer.
Add in the peas, asparagus, spring onions and savoy cabbage. Allow to cook gently for 3-4 minutes before adding the tortelloni. Cook for a further 4 minutes until the pasta is cooked and season to taste.
Serve in deep bowls with a dollop of pesto, fresh basil leaves, shaved pecorino cheese and a drizzle of olive oil.
