MY, my, MY – when it rains it pours! The sky has not shut since I left my house at 5:15am!
I’m actually quite pleased that it’s so gloomy out, as it fits in perfectly with my plans for dinner – Italian Wedding Soup!
I don’t know how or why I have this recipe stored in my brain, but whenever I make it, I’m reminded of family. It is seriously one of the tastiest soups I have ever had – there were audible “Mmmm. MMMmm. MMMMMMs!” tonight!
Honestly – it doesn’t get much better than this easy Italian wedding soup. It might beat out my Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup…that’s sayin’ something!
It sounds strange, but the egg is really chewy and savory because it’s been infused with the Parmesan cheese, and the small pasta are so cute. :)
Wikipedia says: The term “wedding soup” is a mistranslation of the Italian language, minestra maritata (“married soup”), which is a reference to the fact that green vegetables and meats go well together.
I concur! These mini meatballs are really the star of this soup. The completely flavor the broth and are so incredibly delicious. I find them over in the meat department of my grocery store, but you can make your own, too.
Seriously guys – take 20 minutes to make this recipe for Italian wedding soup – you will be SO happy you did. I guarantee you will keep this recipe around to make again and again!!!
Well my little brother is in town from Colorado for Thanksgiving, so I’m going to go hit up my parent’s house to haaaaang with him and the fam for the evening. Soup belly, out!
