“This classic dish relies on high quality ingredients to make it truly shine. While you can opt to keep it as simple as possible by even leaving out the greens, they add a nice color, texture, and flavor to the dish—only further rounded out with a light grating of fresh nutmeg. Use spinach or kale instead if you'd like, and feel free to use chicken broth, other types of tortellini, or even swap in cheese ravioli or your favorite unfilled, short pastas.”
