Cheese Tortellini Soup with Gremolata

I saw this on Food Network years ago. It has been awhile but I think it was on one of Rachael Ray's shows? It is great when you are sick. My favorite when I have a cold. It is so easy to prepare. I have even been without a lemon and substituted lemon pepper and lemon juice. Still very tasty. Luckily I am not sick today. I just wanted this delicious soup. This makes a very thoughtful and sweet gift for a sick friend. Whether in the grocery bags from the store or arranged in a basket. They will appreciate the recipe and ingredients. I LOVE the gremolata! The parsley, lemon and garlic is fresh and flavorful. We have heard that chicken soup heals and Vitamin C is important to prevent colds. This soup has it all; it is fast, easy and delicious. Commit it to memory you never know when you are going to need it.

Cheese Tortellini Soup with Gremolata
Serves: 8


8 cups fat free low sodium chicken broth
Freshly ground black pepper
1 (20 oz.) package refrigerated three cheese tortellini
Handful of fresh Italian parsley leaves, chopped
Zest of one lemon, minced
1 garlic clove, minced


Pour the broth into a heavy large saucepan. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Season the broth with pepper, to taste. Add the tortellini. Simmer over medium heat until al dente, about 7 minutes.

Prepare the gremolata. Mince parsley, lemon zest and garlic together. Add to broth, stir to combine and take off of heat. Ladle the broth and tortellini into soup bowls and serve.
