    Chocolatl's Note:

    That's Dom DeLuise's Mamma. The recipe originated in Spinosa, Italy. If you want a carnivorous variation, you can some spareribs and/or Italian sausages with the garlic, and brown well before adding anything else. To make this completely vegetarian, use vegetable stock in place of chicken stock. You can add water or a little more broth if the soup is too thick. Serve with hot Italian bread.

      This is Italian comfort food at its best, and perfect for a cold, damp day. I used a full 4 cups of low-sodium chicken broth and added a can of undrained cannellini beans (for some protein), plus a little salt and pepper. Absolutely delicious! Thanks for sharing this easy recipe. Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders Tag Game.

      Very good and interesting soup! I wasn't sure what to expect so I added 1 cooked chicken breast cut up and included the potato -- delish. We served this with grilled cheese sandwiches but I think it would have been filling all on its own. Thanks for sharing!
