The Saturday Simmer: Italian soup recipes

Skinny Italian wedding soup, from Everyday Maven (on Soup Chick).

I didn't grow up Italian, but I often wonder whether, in a previous life, I might have been an Italian soup maker. The clean, simple flavors in soups like this skinny Italian wedding soup, from Everyday Maven, call to me. I love the proliferation of dark leafy greens, grains, tomato, fresh herbs, real Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese -- all ingredients I crave on their own, and find irresistible when they're tossed together in a rich broth. Whenever I serve Italian soups, I can't help but add a cheery Mangia! as I bring the bowls to the table.

All kinds of Italian soup recipes caught my eye this week:

Italian mussel soup, from Hunter Angler Gardener Cook

Skinny Italian wedding soup, from Everyday Maven

Italian sausage, zucchini and macaroni soup, from Kalyn's Kitchen

Ribollita (Italian cabbage and bean soup), from Amateur Gourmet

Pappa di pomodoro (Italian bread and tomato soup), from The Italian Dish

Italian white bean and spinach soup, from Sunday Nite Dinner

Italian chicken soup, from The Pioneer Woman Cooks

Italian egg drop soup (stracciatella), from Simply Recipes

Vegetarian Italian farro soup, from The Chic Life

Which will you try first? What intrigues you? Please leave feedback on the original recipe post, and let us know if you've made or adapted any of these recipes. See you next Saturday, and every Saturday, with more soups, stews and chili.
