In the Kitchen: Italian Wedding Soup

This soup is perfect for the weekend after Thanksgiving: light, clean, soothing. Have fun with this; vary it as you see fit, i.e., add par cooked pasta–orzo is good–other vegetables such as carrots or tomatoes, even croutons. Make this your own. Make a lot (12 cups of broth) or a little (8 cups or ½ gallon), it’s all good.
