This traditional Italian Christmas soup will warm up any kitchen this holiday season. Tortellini in brodo has been prepared for generations across Italia and America… and it’s a delicious favorite of celebrity chefs Rachael Ray and Mario Batali. In the city of Modena, Italy, this dish is typically prepared and enjoyed only on Christmas.
It is the absolute perfect recipe for a cold evening for the entire family to savor throughout the year. Although the tortellini fillings vary across seas – from meat filled tortellini prepared in Italia, to ricotta filled in America – each type of tortellini tastes mouthwatering in a warm beef broth. The finishing touch to this Italian staple preparation is a fine bottle of Santa Cristina to complement.
Tortellini in brodo is typically made as a first course in Italia. It should not be dismissed as a fulfilling main course with a delectable side salad and loaf of crispy bread to dip into the broth. It is a hearty and healthy dish.
