Italian Wedding soup
Sun, 01/16/05 5:57 PM
This is one of those commodities that I cannot seem to find in a restaurant that lives up to what Mom used to make. I am sure that she doctored her own recipe to accommodate my own tastes, as her soup had pieces of chicken in addition to the little meat balls.
My questions are two fold -- have you ever found a place that serves phenomenal Italian Wedding Soup? Or...can you help me come up with a way to make my own?
Here is my cooking caveat -- I can follow directions really well, but when I go off on my own, I get into trouble. I tried to make it once with a girlfriend who boiled the chicken and made the broth for me (I had butchered this on several occasions prior), but the end result was not nearly what I had hoped. I am not inclined to cook another chicken from scratch this way, but I purchased a product at the supermarket called "Better than Buillion." I would like to use this, a Publix rotisserie chicken, escarole, my own meatball recipe, orzo pastas, and grated romano cheese. To anyone who can take my ingredients and turn them into a workable recipe, I would be eternally grateful.
