Italian Tortellini en Brodo Recipe: 2 Ingredients, 10 Minutes

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.

  • Homemade chicken broth is best for this recipe, but you could use good-quality canned or boxed.
  • To reduce the sodium, use low-sodium chicken broth.

Here's how to make it:

  1. Bring the chicken stock to a boil in a soup pot. Add the tortellini and cook until it floats to the top.
  2. Remove from the heat. Season with salt and pepper, if needed. Ladle into soup bowls and garnish with chopped parsley, if desired.

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. 😍
