Tortellini in Brodo
Prep: 6 minutes; Cook: 10 minutes; other: 1 minute
This dish is traditionally served as a special Christmas treat, but refrigerated tortellini and canned broth create a meal that's ready in mere minutes any night of the week. Arugula and two types of pepper add a spicy kick to the broth. Tone down the heat by omitting the crushed red pepper and substituting 2 cups of chopped fresh spinach for the arugula.
