Stracciatella

Italian spinach “egg drop” soup with spicy sausage meatballs.

6 cups Chicken Broth -If you don’t want to create your own, look for a one in the freezer section of your grocers. I like “Custom Culinary Roasted Chicken Base.”

1 rind of Parmesan Cheese about 3×3”(optional if you have one use it, it will really deepen the flavor)

1 bag fresh Spinach

8 small Raviolis (cheese or meat fine)

3 eggs-beaten

nutmeg- pinch

Crusty Bread

Meatball mixture_

4 links -Spicy Italian Sausage-casing removed

1 Egg

¼ cup Bread Crumbs

½ teaspoon Black Pepper

Sea Salt –pinch

In a med size bowl mix meatball mixture. Make mini meatballs. Fry meatballs in pan until brown and cooked through. Drain on paper towels and set aside.

Heat  5 cups of broth with the rind of Parmasan. Add meatballs, spinach and nutmeg.

While whisking soup quickly and constantly , slowly pour egg mixture in a steady stream into the boiling soup.
