This week for the thirty-eighth recipe I've made for Thirty Minute Thursdays, cooking our way through Giuliano Hazan's Thirty Minute Pasta book, I made Tagliolini i Brodo (Tagliolini in Broth) on page 38.
The ingredient list: beef broth, tagliolini, and Parmigiano-Reggiano.
We returned home from vacation with a reduced pantry and groceries on hand but I wanted something for lunch that was just simple, quick, easy, and comforting that I could make with what I had on hand . Soup. I turned to my book looking for something that might fit my needs and found this recipe. There are actually 9 soup recipes in this book, almost all of them requiring an onion. For the first time in ever, I was out of onions.
I made the soup, curled up with it in a cup and read through the mail over lunch...perfect. It had a nice beefy taste from the broth and a nutty taste from the melted Parm, sort of a like a French Onion Soup wannabe. Simple, easy, satisfying, and I can check off one more recipe that I have made from the 100 in this book. Here's what Margaret made from the book this week.
