  • Swess chaard can also be used in place of escarole or spinach...with any of the greens, it is very nourishing and tasty. - 6/22/11

  • my family recipe is essential the same, the only difference is first i saute some onion, carrots and celery, I also add crushed garlic to the broth. I try to use organic low sodium broth. I also cook my pasta seperately because if there are leftovers the pasta soaks up all the broth. - 1/30/10

  • I don't eat veal. Can I just add double of one of the other two meats, or use ground chicken or turkey instead?
