  1. Bring a generous pot of water to the boil. Clean the garlic and cut finely. Wash the red pepper and cut off the stalk.

  3. Clean the onion and cut into thin parts. Wash the fennel and cut the bottom and the green of the tuber.

  5. Cut the other half into pieces.
  6. Heat the oil in a frying pan and fry the garlic, red pepper, onion and fennel for 6 minutes on medium heat.
  7. Add 1/2 a liter of lemon juice and season to taste with salt.
  8. In the meantime add the tortelloni and possibly salt when the water is boiling and boil for 6 minutes until al dente.
  9. Meanwhile, roast the pine nuts in the second frying pan without oil or butter in 3 min. On medium heat until golden brown.
  10. Remove from the pan and allow to cool on a plate.
