Most cultures have a version of chicken soup. The one from Rome is known as stracciatella, which comes from the Italian word straccetti, or “little rags,” and that’s what the eggs resemble after they’re stirred into the soup. It’s made with just a handful of basic ingredients, including chicken broth, grated Parmesan and eggs. In our version, we also add small-shaped pasta and baby spinach (or arugula) to create a satisfying meal in a bowl.

Ingredients

  • 4

    large eggs

Lovely (and healthy) comfort food!
This recipe is so simple and so yummy that it'll have to become a staple go-to on a dreary winter evening. I'm lucky enough to have my own chickens so part of the goodness may be because of the freshness of my eggs and so little effort yielded a lovely, light dinner
