Stracciatella alla Romana (Italian Egg Drop Soup) Recipe
Stracciatella alla romana is the egg drop soup of Italian cooking. It starts with a rich meat broth (either chicken or beef), into which a beaten mixture of whole eggs and grated Parmigiano-Reggiano is streamed in to form tiny, light, and flavorful clouds. A bit of fresh nutmeg and lemon complete the picture. It’s quick, comforting, warming, and oh so delicious.
