Tortellini in Broth
This is a famous preparation often served during holidays. Tortellini can be enjoyed with meat sauce also, but in Italy, you will most often find them served in broth.
A big pot of simmering brodo is a common sight. The cook visits the brodo frequently, checking that the simmer is very gentle and never approaching a boil. A skimmer is nearby to lift any debris on the surface. And a spoon is handy to check the brodo while it simmers so that the cook is ready to add a bit of seasoning when it is needed.
