 Broccoli

The name comes from the Italian word for “cabbage sprout.” Broccoli is indeed a relative of cabbage, Brussels sprouts and cauliflower. This deep emerald-green vegetable, sometimes has a purple tinge. Broccoli comes in tight clusters of tiny buds on stout, edible stems. It’s available year-round, with the peak from October through April. Look for broccoli with a deep, green color and buds that are tightly closed. The leaves should be crisp.

Tortellini

Tortellini are ring-shaped pasta, sometimes described as ‘navel shaped’, hence their alternative name of ‘belly button.’ Typically stuffed with a mixture of meat or cheese. Originally from the Italian region of Emilia, tortellini are usually served in beef or chicken broth. Tortellini can be found all around the world. Packed, refrigerated or frozen, tortellini can now be found in many supermarkets and smaller grocery stores.

Ravioli

‘Fresh’ tortellini can also be found in many produce sections. Another filled pasta that is an Italian favorite is ‘filled’ ravioli. Stuffed or filled ravioli is made in the same manner as tortellini. Usually filled with cheese, meat or both. Serve tortellini and ravioli with beef or chicken broth, marinara sauce and Alfredo sauce. Fresh-frozen ravioli can be found alongside tortellini in most if not all grocery stores.

  • Hi Lizbeth~ Thank you so much for your nice comment! That made my day:) That's a shame your family doesn't like soup! I could eat soup every single day and now that the weather has turned colder, I usually do! This soup makes 6-8 servings…..depending on the size of your bowl etc. I like a Big Bowl, when I eat soup..lol. You could definitely make a smaller batch, in fact, now that it is just me and the hubby at home, I have to make smaller batches too. Another thing I like about soup…you can pretty much do anything to a batch of soup and it will still taste good:) Enjoy!

  • Lynn you always have the most delicious recipes of blog land! I had have soups all weekend (store bought, unfortunately since I am the only member of the family who likes soups)! I'm just craving yours like crazy. How many servings aprox. you get from this particular recipe and do you think I could make a smaller batch by cutting the ingredients by half! My guys don't know what they are missing with this deliciousness! lol…thanks for sharing! hugs, Lizy
