This week is the last one before flying to Italy, so there's quite a number of things I want to finish to be sure that I'm leaving with everything sorted out. Days at the lab have been extremely long and busy juggling with meeting, students, lectures and administrative work. So when back home I want to prepare aome light and comforting food. These little tortellini are just perfect. But rather than simply boiling them and serving them with olive oil, this time I opted for a fresh veggies broth made with leek, carrots and carrot leaves. After boiling the veggies in water for 3min I added the tortellini and boiled them for about 10min (you don't want to over-cook them). I served it as a soup and for those who like it I served with some gratted Parmegiano.
