- Michael's Tips
- "Move the meal. Changing the setting is a wonderful way to elevate an ordinary meal. Add a few sparkling lights and move your meal under the stars. Or set up an impromptu table in front of the fireplace. You don't have to have a lot of space to make the setting interesting. Sometimes just turning down the lights and lighting a few candles can set the perfect tone."

This soup is a regular in my home. I prepared this dish with frozen mustard green, because that's what I had on hand and it was great. If you choose a frozen green remember to drain very well.
Have been making this soup for years now. I cut back on the amount of acini de pepe a bit so it's not so thick. It's wonderful and full of bright flavors. It's a staple for me in the winter.
