Tortellini in Brodo

Serves 4

This recipe is an Italian classic that will warm you up inside (Brodo means "broth")!


  • 3 quarts chicken stock

  • 2 bags fresh spinach (10 ounces each)

  • 2 bags frozen cheese-filled tortellini

  • A handful of flat leaf parsley leaves

  • Zest of 1 lemon

  • A couple handfuls of Parmigiano Reggiano cheese

  • A loaf of crusty bread


  1. In a large pot, bring stock up to a boil. Ask a grown-up helper (GH) for help using the stove if you need it. Drop in the frozen tortellini. Give it a stir and cook according to package directions.
  2. When tortellini are done and look like puffed up pillows, ladle them along with the stock into soup bowls. Add a few leaves of spinach into each bowl.

  3. Top with some lemon zest and a small handful of Parmigiano Reggiano. Serve with some crusty bread alongside.
