READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by ChefRed

From my late Grandmother who lived in Italy during WWII. I remember her making this often. Simple ingriedients, but it tastes good. Sprinkle with good cheese if you like. I like crushed red pepper. My mother sometimes adds a head of califlower to this.

This is a harty winter soup, that my son loves!!! I sprinkle it with parmeasan cheese (romano has a stronger taste,that he does not like) and place some oyster crackers in center & I have a wonderful, cheap, quick winter soup!!!
