Mission Statement

We are a people who tell stories in one form or another.
After all isn't blogging just another way to gather around and tell those stories?

Motherhood is Painless is about finding the humor in the every day. In finding the happiness in those stories that we tell. What would happen if we *all* learned to laugh at ourselves? Maybe then the dark corners would recede a bit and we would all rejoice at the love we find there.

Fancy-Schmancy Tortellini Soup

It's A Soup-Tacular!

My mom makes this for company. I just make it when I feel like it.
Otherwise known as tortellini en brodo:

1 package frozen cheese tortellini
2 boxes chicken or vegetable stock
1 large can diced italian style tomatoes
4 cloves garlic, chopped
1 package fresh baby spinach
grated parmesean cheese

Sautee garlic in olive oil in the bottom of your big soup pot. Once it's translucent, add the stock, and the tomatoes and bring to a boil. Add the entire package of tortellini (they can still be frozen) and cook until al dente. Five minutes or so before serving, stir in the spinach and let it wilt. Serve in big bowls and sprinkle with the grated cheese with crusty bread alongside.

It's fancy, delicious and a very do-able recipe. Tortellini soup is so satisfying and comforting, especially with your addition of spinach.

Hey Di,

made this tonight as a quickie side and it came out awesome. Even got Mina to try it, and she ate a few spoonfuls. No easy feat!
