    I love stracciatella - and this is fairly close to what I am used to making. Instead of adding pasta, however, we usually add around 3 or 4 eggs and - this sounds wierd, but - spinach! Once the spinach has wilted in the soup, I add the cheese, and I usually add a generous handful of romano and a dash of salt and pepper. With these changes not only do you have an extremely healthy soup, you have a delicious one!  -  06 Mar 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    What a great, easy, nourishing soup! I followed the recipe exactly except used orzo instead of ditalini and parm instead of romano. I can only imagine how much better it would be with homemade chicken stock. And I think some minced scallions or chives would be a great addition.  -  24 Aug 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is one of my favorite soups that my grandmother used to make all the time. I took her variations on it though: I omitted the pasta, and I added spinach, carrots and peas. It is a pretty incredible soup and super easy!  -  12 Apr 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
