Tortellini en Brodo

Tortellini en Brodo Soup
Did you ever hear the name of a recipe and think to yourself, “This sounds too complicated so I’m not even going to look at the ingredients!”

This recipe for Tortellini en Brodo was that recipe for me when I was a new home cook living on my own. I don’t know why it intimidated me, I was making far more difficult meals than this at the age of 18, but after realizing that ‘en brodo’ simply meant ‘in broth’ I finally looked at the recipe and LAUGHED!  It was so SIMPLE with only 2 ingredients. Now my kids love it when they just want something hot to sooth their throat when they have a cold.

    How funny-the title made me think it was complicated, too! I bet my kids would love this on a cold day.

    Thanks, Carrie!
