      So glad You posted this recipe. I have the same cookbook and make a lot of it's recipes. This soup is one of our favorites, especially if I have on hand, homemade stock, homemade Italian bread and use our own eggs. I change up slightly by rubbing the fried bread with a cut side of a clove of garlic. In fact we are having this soup tonight with some heated up leftover Gnocchi Verdi thrown in. Made the gnocchi, for dinner last night and the recipe is from the same cookbook. Thanks again for posting.
