This Italian Style Wedding Soup is perfect for dinner on a cold night. It has not been especially cold this winter (which I am not complaining about) but I decided I could not wait any longer to make this. So easy and delicious, better than out of a can.
Foodie Fact: I have loved this soup for years but didn’t know until today that it is not served at weddings in Italy, but is actually called “married soup” because meat and spinach ‘marry’ very well together.
Wine Pairing: Pinot Grigio
