Italiano Egg Drop Soup

Deb Rosdahl


As we do not care for the oriental foods that much...I decided to make this soup and gave it an Italian flare! It really is a quick and delicious soup that I make for dinner or lunch and serve with a few crackers or toasted cheese. And believe it or not it really does keep you satisfied for a long time, which is a real diet plus. Truly a family fav! Enjoy :-)
