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!

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.

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!

This recipe was DELISH! I was in the mood to make some soup during the cold weather, but I wanted something simple too. I didn't have Romano, so I substituted the Parmesan I had. And I omitted the nutmeg because I didn't have it either. I added fresh black peppercorn because I love pepper, and it tasted great... thanks for such an easy and simple recipe. This will definitely be something I make over and over again.

I really enjoyed this soup. Very simple to prepare. I followed all of the directions except I used farfalle b/c it was the pasta I had on hand. I broke it into smaller pieces, it worked perfectly. I also added a little squeeze of lemon as I was eating it. The cheese and the broth are salty so next time I will go with a lower sodium broth. Thanks for sharing this great and easy recipe

What a quick, great tasting soup! Normally I do not care for parsley, but I found that it tasted great in this soup. Wonderful recipe, I didn't modify a thing. Ginny, thank you!
