Italian Wedding Soup is one of my all time favorites, this recipe is outstanding, the flavor of the meatballs is really quite nice, I'm going to use that meatball recipe for all meatballs I make from now on.
Excellent flavor - I made tiny meatballs, subbed pearl barley for the pasta. When the soup was ready I ladled it into bowls floated a slice of toast topped with Parmesan cheese and broiled it until golden. I only made enough for 2 servings It was perfect for a cold day
We loved this soup. Followed this recipe exactly. I thought frying the meatballs in the same pot was a great idea because the brown bits really give the soup an extra kick of flavor. This made a lot of meatballs ! The seasonings are right on! Everyone enjoyed this and we will definitely make it often. Made for PAC Spring 2009.
