Tortellini en Brodo
Tortellini en brodo ("in broth") is a traditional first course for Christmas feasts in northern Italy. Because it calls for only a few ingredients, make sure they are of the highest quality, especially the chicken stock (now is a good time to use any you might have in your freezer).
- 2 quarts homemade or store-bought low-sodium chicken stock
- Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
- 1 pound fresh or frozen tortellini, filled with cheese
- In a small stockpot, bring stock to a boil over medium heat. Season with salt and pepper, and stir in tortellini. Cook pasta according to package instructions (it should float to the top when finished). Remove from heat, and serve hot.
