Italian Wedding Soup Recipe

This ancient soup is perfect for formal gatherings, but also delicious at other times of the year as well.

Each region of Italy has its own variation on this classic soup. It dates back to ancient Rome, has traveled to the United States, and taken on typical Italian-American influences. The term "wedding" refers to the marriage of flavors in this soup.
