Ingredients
  • 6 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth

This is perfect for matzo balls! Other stracciatellas I've made have been complicated and bland. This is simple and flavorful. Perfect for busy holiday meal prep. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Tast, but,,,,. I have made other stracciatella soups where you don't mix the eggs and cheese together. I like those recipes much better. Add grated cheese to the bowl of soup. In my opinion, addingg the eggs with the cheese makes the eggs clumpy instead of a sheer addition to the soup. Think Chinese egg drop soup for a sheer and clean addtion to the soup. item not reviewed by moderator and published

My husband and I enjoyed this very easy, healthy and light soup. The leftovers were delicious too. We did follow suggestions to add a little extra parmesan to make the soup a little richer. Thank you Giada. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This one has been served for generations in my family. Our version omits the spinach and includes rice and additional parm. Served with a dark green salad and slices of warm, crusty bread, it's the perfect comfort meal on a cold winter's night. Quick, easy, inexpensive ,,, and oh, so delicious! item not reviewed by moderator and published
