2-Ingredient Tortellini en Brodo Recipe: An Amazingly Easy Soup Recipe From Italy

Two ingredients? That may seem impossible, but this easy two-ingredient tortellini en brodo recipe is filling, warming and delicious. This classic Italian recipe originated in Northern Italy, where simple, delicious recipes thrive. And nothing defines that more than this tortellini soup recipe

Because there are just two ingredients, make sure you use the best! Use homemade chicken broth, if possible, for the best results. Store-bought chicken broth can be used, but be sure it's a good-quality one. Serve this easy Italian soup recipe with hot, crusty bread. For color, you could sprinkle the soup with some fresh chopped herbs.

Cook Time: 7 minutes

Yum! I saw Stanley Tucci eat this on "Searching for Italy" last night. If you haven't watched that new series on CNN, I highly recommend it. My grocery store sells pieces of Parmesan rinds. I bet you could simmer the broth on very low for a little bit with a piece of rind in it before adding the tortellini to add some Parmesan flavor to the broth. Love simple recipes like this!

So savory and delicious. Simple, too. Genius! Donna John , I love your idea for how to add Parmesan flavor. I sprinkle shredded Parm on everything I can, haha!
So easy, yummo. 😍
