Looking for a super simple meal? This one can be as complex or as easy as you’d like. Friends who live in Bologna told us how much they love tortellini en brodo, a rich soup we had never thought of before. All you need is really amazing broth and tortellini. You can buy frozen or fresh tortellini, cook as directed, and then just pop it into warmed broth. Perfect on it’s own or with a salad, especially on a chilly day.
We decided to attempt a complex Italian broth. We followed the recipe in this book, which worked very well. It made a super flavorful, thick broth. It was for sure worth it! If you decide to make your own broth, we always recommend freezing the extra so it’s easy to pull out and use when you wan to use it. If you decide to go the store-bought route, try to find a high quality frozen broth from a store that makes their own.
