Helpful hints

  • Look for low-sodium broth without potassium chloride. If unavailable, substitute with reduced-sodium broth and omit the salt or use your own homemade low-sodium broth.
  • Omit the salt if desired. Sodium difference equals 107 mg per serving.
  • Wedding Soup is an Italian-American soup that is popular in the United States, especially northeastern Ohio and western Pennsylvania.  The translation of “minestra maritata” is married soup, a reference to the fact that the ingredients go well together.  Try this blend of tiny meatballs, diced chicken, spinach, carrots and tiny pasta in a chicken broth - no wedding necessary!

Italian Wedding Soup

Tried this over the weekend - it is one of the rare soups I was able to serve to the entire family without hearing complaints. And, although I understand the traditional wedding soup is usually made with chicken balls, I appreciate the inclusion of beef in this particular recipe - because of the iron. Rating this one excellent.

I have not yet tried this recipe, but plan to do so. I am not deterred by the two reviews because they obviously did not read the recipe properly. Chicken is added, however, beef is definitely used to make the meatballs. Careful attention to the ingredients and instructions are imperative! I am rating this very Good because of the ingredients stated in the recipe.
