Italian Wedding Soup Recipe

I'm not sure where the name of this soup originated, but my aunt in Pennsylvania shared the recipe with me. Even in our hot-Florida climate, this soup always satisfies. Family and friends frequently ask me to prepare it. - Nancy Ducharme, Deltona, Florida

MY REVIEW

"My children ask me to make this recipe when they are hungry for soup. It's very tasty & easy to throw together. I use 1/2 of a can of spinach instead of fresh. To make it even easier, I cook the shells in the soup."

"Just made this soup and it was amazing. Great recipe with lots of flavor and hearty texture. This is just what we needed for a cold, snowy, winter afternoon."

"I just made this recently and it was awesome. I even cheated and bought the pre made wedding soup meatballs at out local Italian store. Everyone raved about how delicious the soup tasted and never knew the difference. This recipe tastes very similar to the wedding soup they serve at the Olive Garden too. Definitely a keeper in my recipe box!"

"This is the best wedding soup recipe I've tried to date as I've been searching now for awhile. I made two changes; cut back on the beef by 50% and doubled the spinach."
