Mama Stella's Straciatella
Try saying that 3 times in a row! This one I just had to name after my mother, because she made it for me every time I had a cold. Stracciatella[ is best described as an Italian egg drop soup. It takes only minutes to make and is naturally low carb. Ciao down, bella!]
- 6 cups chicken stock
- 3 large eggs
- 1/4 cup grated Parmesan
- 2 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley leaves
- Salt and pepper
Bring the stock to a simmer in a medium saucepan.
With a whisk, mix the eggs and Parmesan cheese together in a bowl. Make sure the stock is not boiling and slowly pour in the egg and cheese mixture. Wait a minute for the eggs to just set. Gently stir in the parsley, slightly breaking up the cooked egg. Turn off heat and season with salt and pepper. Divide among bowls and serve immediately.
