Tortellini In Brodo
2 cups chicken stock (if possible, homemade is best)
3/4 cup frozen tortellini
1 teaspoon Parmigiano-Reggiano, freshly grated
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice, amount a wedge worth
Salt and pepper
Heat the stock to a boil and cook the tortellini. Ladle into bowls, squeeze in lemon and stir. Grate cheese and zest on top, and add some freshly ground salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
Whether you've just come in from the cold, have a cold, or just want a nice and easy meal, tortellini in a good broth will do just the trick. All you need is packaged or frozen tortellini, chicken broth and a lemon.
