Tortellini in broth
Tortellini in brodo
Some friends in Bologna have a live in granny to do their cooking. Here’s one of her recipe for meat filled tortellini in broth.
It hadn’t occurred to me that tortellini should be served in broth, until many years ago when we first visited friends in Bologna. They had a live-in grandmother of the type, who doesn’t mind cooking soup and rolling pasta for others to enjoy, while she stays downstairs with her television. Brava.
Her tortellini pasta filled with boiled meat and sausage ends was absolutely fabulous and unforgettable. If you don’t have time to make your own broth or tortellini, good readymade products can be used instead.
