Tortellini in Brodo {Tortellini in Broth}

Soup’s on! & this bowl I’m sending to my sweet friend Rachael {aka the oh so fabulous La Fuji Mama} all the way over on the West coast. If she lived closer I would most certainly deliver it myself. If you follow me on Twitter, you may have heard through the twitter vine that she’s recovering from having her tonsils removed so I’m helping out with a little guest post so she has time to focus on recovering {although I know she’d much prefer to be in the kitchen cooking up some fuji fabulousness}.

What do I want when I’m not feeling so hot. Soup, of course. Tortellini in Brodo {Tortellin in Broth} came to mind immediately. It’s just bliss in a bowl! You have a rich flavorful broth peppered with veggies which would be quite scrumptious on its own, but oh no, then you have little pillows of perfectly plump pasta bursting with cheese floating about just waiting on your spoon….perfection! And my little secret for making this dish great…come a little closer so I can whisper in your ear *Parmigiano Reggiano Rind* Yep, you won’t believe how much depth it will bring to your broth ; ) You know how much I love my Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, it’s like gold in my house so I try to find uses for the rind too, waste not want not ; )

Now that the temperatures are cooling off  just a bit, it’s the perfect time to start enjoying bowls and ladels full of soup. And if it’s still hot where you are, just turn your air condition way down ; )

Go ahead over to La Fuji Mama’s for the RECIPE and be sure to send her some well wishes while you’re there!

    Just thought I’d let you know that the link to La Fuji Mama’s recipe doesn’t appear to work (well, for me anyway).

    The soup looks beautiful, as all of your fabulous dishes do.
