"This is a great soup for crisp fall evenings. I used thighs or breasts for the cooked chicken and this would be great for leftover chicken."

"This was one of the most delicious, and definitely the easiest, version of Italian Wedding Soup, which happens to be my favourite! I have never had chicken in it before and it was a nice addition. I made the recipe as listed except for doubling the amount of pasta and grating some fresh parmesan on top. Terrific! Made for my teammate for ZWT7, Thanks Mary! :)"
"This was a great and filling soup. I wouldn't change a thing! Made for ZWT 7."
"This soup was amazing. I just made it and had it on all day. My hubby even said it was better than the canned soup. Will make this again and again. Thanks again for the fab recipe."
"This is DELICIOUS!!! Easy too! I followed the recipe closely but used a whole rotisserie chicken for the cooked chicken. I used store bought meatballs (WHICH I WILL NOT DO AGAIN - WILL MAKE MY OWN!) and the meatballs almost ruined the soup for me but the soup is just amazing and will be even better with my own homemade meatballs. I used chicken stock and upped the carrots and celery and added 6 cloves minced garlic. I cooked elbow macaroni on the side (my kids fav!) and we add this to our bowls and this was WONDERFUL! This makes quite a bit and so I've frozen it into several small sized meal portions. I thawed it yesterday and my kids liked it so much they asked me to thaw another one for lunch today. Will definitely make this one again and again. YUMMY!!!!!!!!!!!!"
"I made this for a New Year's Eve party and it was so easy to make and tasted delicious! I used Parmesan cheese instead of Romano cheese and it tasted just fine, they are both strong flavors and it just went well with the soup! mmmm--I will be making this again! Thanks"
"I am gonna give this 3 stars cuz my husband loved it. My daughter didn't like the orza. I didn't really care for it. I used fresh spinach that gave the soup a greenish not so appealing look. I used these frozen meatballs that I love but didn't love them in this soup. If I make it again I would make my own. I added garlic and half an onion."
"This was FANTASTIC. I modified the recipe just a little (as in, I didn't put it in the crockpot but cooked it on the stove), as I do with most recipes but this was by far the best Italian Wedding Soup I've had."
"Even though I had to make this using low sodium broth, it was still VERY tasty. And easy to make. I'll definately be making it again and again. Thanks you for the recipe!"
"Mary this is great and tastes just like my nana used to make me. Authentic Wedding Soup. I made a double batch for my DD while I visited her and she went wild for it as did her friends and my SIL. Needless to say I printed her the recipe so she can make this again as I will this week for my own house. Simple to make and I could not believe it as I thought Nana slaved all day to make this. Thank you. MAde for My 3 Chefs 2009"
"Very delicious soup! My DD has eaten all of it in two days! This comes together quickly and is a no-fuss meal. I will make this again and again! Thanks, Mary, for a real keeper!"
"I made this yesterday and pressured canned 3 quarts (minus the pasta). I made more chicken broth, my family likes a lot of broth. Yummy!"
"This is soooo good. I made it several times last winter and can't wait until it gets cold enough to make this soup again."
"This was an excellent soup. I used Parmesan instead of Romano because that's what I had and put in celery seed vs celery because I don't really like it. I made it yesterday and am making it again tonight to cook for brunch tomorrow and then freezing."
"Wow! This was so awesome! I made my own mini meatballs and baked them for 10 minutes, Then added them with everything else to the crock pot. The pasta I used was Orzo. This will be a regular in our house!"
"Incredible! Follow the recipe exactly and you will not be disappointed. Totally going on the rotation."
"This second time making Italian Wedding Soup...but my first time using this recipe and this one won hands down. My friend ate three bowls in one sitting and we both took it for lunch until it was gone. This will be astaple meal during D.C.'s winters from now on."
"Not quite sure if I should rate this or not since I changed it so much but I used the base of it and it was delicious. I think I should rename this "Clean Out The Freezer" Soup. I used everything in my freezer I could clean out to start over again when the garden produce comes on. I used frozen chicken broth, left over Thanksgiving turkey broth, sugar snap peas, okra, sun-dried tomatoes, homemade frozen spaghetti noodles in place of the pasta. Frozen fresh spinach I coarsely chopped and threw in. I had 4 bite-size carrots I found in the frige and chopped up.....(lol). Made up a parmesan type meatball and rolled small and added after I had simmered the soup on the stove awhile. I doubled the batch and had TONS of soup!! Thanks for sharing..will make this again next spring! ;-)"
"We love this soup. I made this soup on the stove top. I had cooked mini italian meatballs in the freezer and some leftover cooked chicken and some home made chicken stock it came together very quickly. I boiled the stock with the vegetables for 15 minutes added the meatballs and chicken boil for 10 minutes then added the cheese and pasta and fresh spinach and finished boiling for 9 minutes. I used garlic powder 1 tsp and alot of pepper as well as a bay leaf. I found it needed a bit of salt as well. The flavors blended well together. Made for Soup, Sandwich,Salad,Starter event in the cooking photo forum. I will be making this again, thanks for sharing this recipe Mary."
