Easy weeknight Tortellini in Broth

This is the cozy best winter meal for when you don't feel like cooking. It will take you a total of about 25 minutes to make and it's completely nurturing and satisfying. 

All you need are:

One bag of frozen cheese tortellini

2 tablespoons Olive Oil 

One bunch of chopped flat leaf parsley 

One carrot, diced 

1/2 onion, diced 

2 cloves garlic, minced

10 cups Beef Broth 

Shredded Parmesan 

Crushed Red Chili Pepper Flakes (optional) 


Heat a large saucepan over medium high heat. Add olive oil, carrot and onion. Sauté until soft, about 4-5 minutes. 

Add the garlic and crushed red pepper if using and sauté for 2 more minutes. 

Add the beef broth and bring to a boil. Cover and bring the heat to a medium-low, let simmer for 10 minutes. 

Meanwhile place the frozen tortellini in a pot of boiling water for one minute, drain and put aside.

Stir the parsley in the broth to taste, and add salt & pepper to taste. 

Place the tortellini into bowls and ladle the broth mixture on top. 

Garnish each bowl with a large pinch of Parmesan cheese and serve right away. Buon Appetito!
