Pea Pesto with Tortellini and Mint

I found this recipe for Pea Pesto with Tortellini on Giada De Laurentiis's website, Giadzy and decided to try it for dinner!  It was honestly, one of the easiest and best recipes I've tried and I would definitely serve it at a dinner party because everyone would love it.  Obviously it isn't gluten-free so make sure all your guests can eat it.  The addition of pancetta gives this recipe so much flavor and I used a little more cheese than the recipe calls for because, why not?!  Use the best parmesan that you can find because it really does make a difference.  The chopped fresh mint and the lemon juice added at the end finish this dish beautifully!  You need to make this for dinner tonight!
