This is not a decorative egg but rather a delicious soup that Italians make for special occasions. Eggs are the symbol or life and renewal and this soup was always the appetizer to Weddings. Because eggs are now inexpensive we can make this delish soup any time of the year. I hope you like my classic version. It is soooo easy.

Step 1: Prep & Ingredients

8 cups of chicken or vegetable broth
6 lg eggs
1/2 lemon, juiced
3 tbsp chopped parsley, flat leaf
1 tsp black pepper
2 tbsp bread crumbs
1 tbsp parmesan cheese

parmesan cheese for sprinkling

eggs, lemon, parsley, pepper, crumbs and cheese to a bowl. Whisk until thoroughly blended.
<p>Ended up great! Bread crumbs and lemon juice was sort of taboo a thought to add but it was great!</p>
So glad! The lemon takes some of the eggy smell out
i will definitely try this, looks delicious! thanks for posting this
<p>So good! My mom makes passatelli in soup all the time and their recipe is very similar to stracciatella's :)</p>
What part of Italy is she from?
<p>We all live in Emilia Romagna, in a town close to Bologna. Passatelli are typical of our region :)</p>
<p>Yum, looks delicious!</p>
Thanks so much
<p>The parsley is classic Roman cooking which is where my parents were born. But, you could also use chopped spinach and Southern Italians use tiny meatballs in theirs! Cheers!</p>
