I really hope my kitchen is soundproof, because something about cooking pasta makes me sing. Maybe it’s my Italian-ness coming out, but when I’m making spaghetti or tortellini or penne, I am belting it out.
So, tortellini in brodo is my chicken soup. The ultimate sick/tired/cold/lazy meal. It’s what I cook when I don’t feel like cooking.
Here’s why it’s so simple
What you need:
- low sodium chicken broth
That’s it. Well, and a spoon to eat it all up.
How you make it:
- Bring chicken broth to a boil (I use the ration of one quart of broth to 8 oz of pasta)
- Add tortellini, cook for 8 minutes
- Season to taste
- Remove from heat
- Ladle into bowl, top generously with parmesan
