What is Italian Wedding Soup?
Italian Wedding Soup is one of my all-time favorites but did you know that the soup has nothing to do with weddings? The name “Italian Wedding Soup” happened to get a little lost in translation. It is a mis-translation of the Italian phrase “minestra maritata” which translates to “married soup”. It is actually a reference to the fact that green vegetables and meats go well together or in other words the flavors “marry” well.
