Shortcut Tortellini en Brodo

Share This:

Tortellini en Brodo is so easy that it hardly needs a recipe. We give you one anyway as a quick guide, but remember that you can riff using another kind of simple broth (maybe one with coconut milk and lime?) and frozen dumplings for a fun variation.

1 pound loose mild Italian sausage meat or frozen meatballs
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 cloves of garlic, minced
8 cups chicken or vegetable broth
2 cups water
18 ounces frozen cheese tortellini
2 cups baby spinach
Parmigiano Reggiano, grated for serving


  1. If using loose sausage meat, divide the sausage into 32 (1/2-ounce) portions and roll each one into a tablespoon-sized meatball. Heat the olive oil in a large dutch oven or large pot over medium-high heat. Add the sausage or frozen meatballs and cook, turning occasionally, until browned all over, about 3 minutes per side. The meatballs might not be completely cooked at this point — that’s okay! Add the garlic and cook for one minute more, until fragrant.
  2. Add the broth and water, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and add the tortellini. Simmer until tortellini cooks to al dente according to package directions.
  3. Remove the pot from heat and add the baby spinach. Stir to combine then serve with freshly grated Parmigiano Reggiano.
