MANY of our family-favorite recipes came from my mother-in-law, who was a wonderful cook. My husband inherited her love of cooking, and he enjoys stirring up her recipes, including this fabulous soup. We've often treated our friends to this dish, and one young man even asked for the recipe when he went off to college. —Louella Kightlinger Erie, Pennsylvania

"Rivels are an old-fashioned pasta dish usually made by dropping tiny pieces of pasta into boiling soup. Rivels are probably Germanic in origin, and they make an easily prepared short "noodle", which have gone out of favor in modern cooking. They are usually cooked in a chicken soup. According to wikiHow"
