This soup is definitely not boring! You can substitute your favorite small pasta shape in place of the ditalini, if you prefer.

Great recipe! I made some changes based on what we have in the house and personal taste. Instead of chicken I used sliced sausage which complemented the spinach flavor well. I doubled the garlic and used 10 oz. fresh spinach that I sauteed with the onion/garlic mixture. Another Stracciatella recipe uses lemon juice so I added a scant Tbsp. which really perked up the soup. A plus for us: adding 1/3 C. milk/cream just before stirring in the eggs gives this a whole new look and flavor. YUM! Read More

This soup was great! My daughters enjoyed it too although my husband originally stuck his nose up at it because he doesn't like spinach. After watching us enjoy it (while he ate left-overs) he decided he'd try it the next time I made it. I did make a few changes. I used garlic chicken broth since that was all I had on hand and decreased the amounts of chicken and spinach used due to what I had available. The parmesan makes it really yummy. It's definitely something I'll make again! Read More

Good but not as good as the Stracciatella II recipe on this site. It did however give "tweaking" ideas for the latter dish. Read More

I thought this soup was wonderful! I did add more garlic than 1/2 a tsp and used fresh spinach in replace of frozen. I wasn't even hungry when I made it but after I tried it I couldn't put my spoon down! It was quick and easy too. Now I just need to figure out how to pronounce the name! Haha! Read More

I love this soup! It was easy to make even for the first time and it tastes excellent. My family loved it and I'm glad I doubled the recipe because now we have plenty of leftovers. This is my new favorite soup. Highly recommended! Read More

Delicious! I was looking for a recipe using spinach pasta & egg and this was perfect! I added a large finely diced tomato and used fresh baby spinach finely sliced and a bit of olive oil with the butter-it was a hit. My three young boys loved it-simple good and very filling. Read More
