Stracciatella ( Italian Egg Drop Soup )
I have had a cold for a little while and was in need of some major comfort food.
Southern California is having record heat for this time of year and even when it's
100 degrees....I love to eat soup. I guess when you're inside with the air conditioner
on it makes a difference. Soup to me is total comfort food and makes me instantly
feel better. This is my favorite way to eat this and I know you're going to love it.
