You know what 2020 needs? Cases of wine, to be over, cake, True Blood marathons, yes to all of these things, but how about a big bowl of Stracciatella Soup. This was one of my Grandma's Jo's staples, and when you see the ingredient list and steps, you will know why. It's perfect for snowy winter days and nights and the best part is you likely have all the ingredients on hand and it only takes about 15 minutes to make. But even with it's minimal prep time and simple ingredient list, this legendary soup delivers a deep and delicious flavor, certain to provide the culinary coziness that 2020 is likely making you want.
Sistilia and I just got back in from frolicking in the first real snow storm we've had in years and for some reason I got the urge to whip this up. I am so glad that I did. Sis and I swallowed down two bowls with ease and then delivered the remainder to our snow shoveling neighbors outside. The only problem is it's all gone and now I want more!
Serves 4 - 5
What Do I Need
48 Ounces Chicken Broth
5 Eggs (beat in a medium bowl)
3/4 Cup Parmigiano-Reggiano Cheese (grated)
1 T Parsley (fresh and chopped)
2 Cups Baby Spinach
Pour your chicken broth in a medium saucepan and place over medium/high heat to bring to a boil. While waiting, whisk your grated cheese, eggs and parsley together well. When your broth comes to a boil, SLOWLY pour in your egg mixture stirring constantly and allowing the soup to return to a boil. Next add your spinach, stir in and cook until it is wilted, about 2 - 4 minutes. Add salt carefully to taste and serve immediately!!!!
While this soup is fast, easy and delicious, I can't stress how important it is to add your egg mixture to the boiling broth slowly and keep stirring. This stops your eggs from clumping together and serving more of a clumpy scrambled egg soup as opposed to tattered little bits, you want tattered little bits!
Feel free to freestyle here, no greens? No problem, just make it with the egg and cheese mixture! It's still going to hit the spot!
