Last week when we were in Montana on vacation with friends I was incredibly spoiled...everyone was taking turns cooking dinner and somehow I never really had a turn! One day Page spent the day making two soups for our dinner. Ina Garten's Italian Wedding Soup has become one of her daughter Coco's favorites, and a staple in their house. At the little country store where we shopped in Montana she could not find ground chicken or chicken sausage so she substituted ground turkey and sweat italian sausage. The soup was delicious! Although you cannot see it in my photo you put some maccaroni into the bowls before ladling in the soup, making it a hearty meal.
Matzoh Ball Soup (one of my personal favorites) was the second option. She found a recipe in the Gourmet Comfort Winter/Spring 2012 Special Edition that is on news stands right now. If you like ginger (I love it) this is the recipe for you...fresh ginger adds amazing flavor to the broth.
