Introduction

Stracciatella is a wonderful Italian soup that at first may look complicated, but is actually one of the easiest soups you will ever make, and frankly, once you make it, you can serve it at any dinner with complete confidence. It is delicious, and has a complexity of flavors that will leave your guests wondering where you learned to cook like that.

Ingredients

    6 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
    2 large eggs
    1/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan
    2 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley
    2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil leaves
    1/2 tsp nutmeg
    1 cup lightly packed spinach leaves, chopped or cut into thin strips
    Salt and freshly ground black pepper
    1 thinly sliced potato, (optional)

Directions

Bring the broth to a gentle boil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. ( if adding potato, simmer in broth until tender), In a bowl, whisk the eggs, cheese, parsley, and basil to blend. Reduce the heat to medium-low. Stir the broth in a circular motion. Gradually drizzle the egg mixture into the moving broth, stirring gently with a fork to form thin strands of egg, about 1 minute. Stir in the spinach, then season the soup to taste, with salt and pepper.

Serve with chopped parsley and thinly shaved Parmesan cheese to taste.

This is a wonderful soup. Warms you all the way down to the soul....
