Bring a large pot of salted water to a rolling boil. Cook tortellini in batches until they float to the surface and are cooked through.


Remove from the water using a slotted spoon and transfer to large warmed serving bowls and keep warm.


Meanwhile, heat butter in a large stainless steel frying pan until it melts. Add sage and pumpkin puree, and cook gently for about five minutes.


Remove from heat and season to taste with chilli, salt and pepper.


Spoon sage and pumpkin sauce over the tortellini. Serve sprinkled with pine nuts and parmesan.
