I love Italian wedding soup but to me the best part is the meatballs. I found that the meatballs in this recipe were not as good as when using ground pork. Pork sausage has flavors such as sage that give the meatballs a different taste than I expected. I also browned my meatballs in the oven which I found to be an easier method.
Good recipe. I eliminated raisins and chicken and added onion. It is a good start and for my preference I may tweak it a little more. To the old comment from an Italian who never heard of this "traditional wedding soup," it has nothing to do with weddings. It is a translation from the Italian phrase "minestra maritata" ("married soup").

My family loved this recipe. I would probably skip the raisins next time - too sticky and didn't add anything. We used mild sausage as that's what I had on hand. I did increase the amount of chicken stock since I was "making it"! And I made some extra meatballs as that's their favorite part. Very easy and good.
Interesting...I am Italian and I have never ever heard about this Traditional Italian Wedding Soup =)
Used ground chuck instead of beef (this tip given to me by my Italian friend). The meatballs turned out fabulous! The soup was very tasty! My family enjoyed this very much!
Good one,,,,easy to prepare
