An Italian broth with Egg strings.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large saucepan bring stock to a boil over moderate heat.
  2. In a bowl beat together the eggs, Parmesan and parsley.
  3. Reduce the heat to low and drizzle egg misxture into stock, gently stirring.
  4. Simmer, stirring, just until eggs are set.
  5. Season with salt and pepper. Because the parmesan cheese tends to be salty, I would eliminate the additional salt until soup is ready. Taste for flavour and then add salt as required.

This is my type of comfort food. I loved it. This is the soup that I'm serving at my next dinner party. It's light, spicey, has great texture, and is so easy to make. Delicious! Thanks, Toolie, for posting it.
