This is my favorite soup of all time. I love the italian seasons and the little meatballs. This is a very easy recipe but tastes like you fussed all day. The Escarole mentioned is like a lettuce and you cut it up finely and just let it float on the soup. If you're familiar with this soup you know what I'm talking about. I bet you always wondered what that was floating on that soup, huh? Well thanks to justapinch.com, you know!
