I MAKE THIS SOUP OFTEN AND HAVE GIVEN OUT THE RECIPE TO MANY OF MY FRIENDS. I USE CHOPPED SPINACH (FRESH OR FROZEN) INSTEAD OF ESCAROLE, PASTINA INSTEAD OF ORZO, AND VERY SMALL SOUP NOODLES. ALSO ADD SOME SMALL PIECES OF COOKED CHICKEN. MY ITALIAN MOTHER-IN-LAW SHOWED ME HOW TO MAKE THIS SOUP. JOANN FROM MICHIGAN

My hushband won't eat any thing that looks like rice, so I used Acini Di Pepe pasta , which I think is the traditional pasta for this soup. I also used spinach instead of escarole , cause I couldn't get it that day at my store. I'd tried this soup at a local restraunt just a week before recieving your recipe & enjoyed it. So I was happy to try your recipe & it was great. Your right about adding the extra cheese it makes a world of difference & I'm not a big fan of parmesan but it did make this soup. THANKS

Where are the beans listed in this recipe??? Which kind of beans. It's difficult to make without a complete ingredients mix!

My family and I cannot get enough of this soup. I make it at least twice a month and it's now the dish I make when someone is feeling "under the weather". The meatballs take a bit more time than the recipe allows, however, the smaller meatballs are worth the extra 20 minutes.

Everyone in the family enjoyed this soup, especially the little ones! The meatballs take a bit of time to make, but the effort was worth it the soup was delicious!

My Italian grandmother used to make this soup for holiday dinner as the first course. She used small bow tie shaped pasta. To make the meatballs, she flattened the meatball mixture into a 1/2" pattie and cut the meatballs like cookies with her thimble. The weren't round balls, but that didn't make any difference. The description of the soup at the top of the page says the recipe contains beans and oregano. Neither was listed in the ingredients or the recipe.

I was very impressed how good this soup really was. I didn't have some of the ingredients available in my pantry, so I had to improvise. I will be making this soup again, so I do plan on stocking my pantry with these items.

it was my first try at making italian wedding soup and it was delicious. I used alphabet pasta because I like bigger pasta. It is an excellent recipe and easy to follow and easy to make.

This is very close to the recipe my grandmother used, I was looking for a recipe that was close enough to hers that I could recreate her soup. The other recipes said to use frozn spinach instead of the escarole, at that just did not work for me. All I had to do was change to the acini de pepe (little ball shaped noodles) and add pieces of leftover chicken or turkey and I had it jut like she made it....THANX!!!

If you follow the recipe literally (as new cooks sometimes do) and add the "first seven ingredients", you would have six cups of water in your meatballs. Might make them mushy :0)

I'm only 18, and I made this recipie on a whim, and my dad ate the whole batch. It wasn't hard and it turned out rather well. I'm probably going to be making it again, sometime.

I use Ditalini instead of Orzo, And I sprinkle 1 beaten egg and mix as I drizzle egg. Which makes this soup out of this world
