Stracciatella is a traditional roman style soup.
It’s simplicity in preparation and flavor makes it a perfect beginning to any meal.
In this recipe I added chicken.
Traditionally it’s just a broth with egg and Parmesan cheese.
Besides the chicken I will sometimes add fresh baby spinach.
The fun part of making this dish is swirling in the egg.
Sracciatella takes around 15 minutes to prepare and is definitely a family favorite.
1/4 cup of fresh grated parmesan cheese
1/4 cup of fresh Italian flat leaf parsley, chopped
1/8 tsp of nutmeg
1/4 tsp of salt
1/4 tsp of white pepper
1 quart can of chicken broth
2 chicken breast, cooked and shredded
In a medium size bowl beat together the eggs, cheese, parsley, nutmeg,salt and pepper.
In a large pot bring the broth to a boil.
Pour in the egg mixture in streams.
Add the chicken lowering the heat and simmer for 2 to 3 minutes.
