Cappelletti! Typical pasta from Emilia-Romagna, my home-region. In my family we used to make them all together for Christmas and cook them in broth, which is also the way I prefer to eat them! I need to learn how to make them in my own... Maybe it could be one of my new year resolutions!

Tuscan Tortellini Soup is something that my mom makes at home a lot (though it is not a recipe she made up entirely on her own) and is always something that I look forward to when I'm home visiting from school. She makes it a little extra spicy which I love, and ALWAYS makes it in this huge, teal colored pot. If you haven't had it before, you should definitely try it now! For anyone who's curious, this design and type was all drawn and arranged by myself on Photoshop using a Wacom tablet.

This is my favourite midweek recipe. As long as you have some frozen tortellinis on hand, you can make this within minutes. The ingredients can be easily found in your fridge. The chicken broth can be substituted with a vegetable broth. It will still taste great. I promise!

This is one of our family’s favorite dinner meals. Especially the kids love it.
Cut the ham and onion into little dices and cook them in a about a tsp of butter until the onion is almost cooked through. Add cream and spices and let the sauce simmer until it starts to thicken. Cheese lovers can add freshly grated Parmesan cheese to the sauce - we sometimes do this when we’re feeling cheesy. While the sauce is simmering, take the broccoli apart, clean it and cook it for a few minutes. Drain it and set aside. It’s time to add the Tortellini to the sauce - please allow them to heat up. Now add the broccoli and stir gently. Enjoy!

Today, we'd like to congratulate Daniela Garreton, an artist from Santiago, Chile for being our 1st place winner! Daniela will receive $1,000 from They Draw and Cook for her wonderfully sweet Pan de Pascua illustration. The judges thought Daniela's recipe was beautiful - the warmth of her colors, her watercolored typography, her perfectly simple linework and the sweetness of her little family of birds were all just too irresistible. They also loved the fact that while this may be a popular and traditional holiday recipe in Chile, it's a new and fresh idea for many of us. Congratulations Daniela and thanks for sharing this little piece of holiday goodness with everyone!This wraps up our month-long feast of illustrated festive foodie fabulousness! We hope you enjoyed seeing this blast of over 250 holiday recipes.Thanks so much to our friends at The FN Dish for allowing us to showcase the work of so many talented artists on their site as well.
