Amazingly, almost every time I go to Costco, they are offering samples of this product. I imagine it's not a particularly authentic version, though!

I've just seen an advert for a Campbell's tinned product called this.

My understanding is it is not a "soup" served at "weddings"but is a "marrage" of ingredients?

I think Progresso Chickarina Soup is the most commercially available version of this dish, isn't it?

I actually LOVE Chickarina! It's my "go to" canned soup when I'm feeling under the weather. That is if I'm not doing the medicinal thing with a big bowl of Pho or Hot and Sour soup instead :cool:

My (born in Italy) grandmother used to make this soup all the time when I was little. I had never heard of it anywhere else until just now....

She made it with meatballs and spinach, but that is all I can remember....

Little meatballs, chopped spinach and/or escarole, pearl pasta and chicken broth. That is Italian Wedding Soup, no?

Chickarina has been one of my faves ever since I was little. It always blew the doors off of Campbells Chicken Noodle, which I found bland and watery, even as a child. I never understood why other kids liked that... :huh:

Here is the only recipe I could find in English

...as always there are many versions.

The About.com Italian food guy, Kyle Phillips, did a nice piece on Italian wedding soup:

      I'll be in Naples for a few days next month and I wanted to try something traditional, and my friend recommended trying parmigiana. She said she loved it, but the problem is that she ate it at her Italian friend's house, and I won't be able to have that exact parmigiana. So, I did some research online and found a few restaurants that have good ratings and are serving allegedly great eggplant casserole. This place is 4 stars rated, but people seem not to agree whether the parmigiana is good or not.... On the other hand, this place has a great rating, appears when searching for the parmigiana, but nobody seems to write about it in their reviews. Finally, this one is said to have the best parmigiana in Naples (or in the world, for that matter), and I wanted to know if anyone had the so-called world's best?
      I would really appreciate if you could help me make the decision. Looking forward to your advice!

      I recently took a trip to Northern Italy, and was delighted to find that the cappuccino everywhere was just wonderful, without exception. Smooth, flavorful, aromatic perfect crema, strong but not too strong.
      Aside from the obvious answer (duh, Italians created cappuccino ), what makes Italian capp so fantastic, and how do I duplicate the effect here?
      I'm wondering if it's the water, the way the coffee is ground or stored, the machines used....I'm baffled.
      Also noticed that the serving size tended to be smaller than what I'm used to -- i.e. a small teacupful vs. a brimming mug or Starbucks supersize. Not sure why that is either.
      Grazie mille for any insight on this!

      The Modernist Cuisine team is currently traveling the globe to research pizza and different pizza styles for our next book Modernist Pizza.  Nathan and the team will be in São Paulo and Buenos Aires soon. We'd love hear from the eGullet community—what pizzerias should they visit while they're there? You can read more about our next book Modernist Pizza here. Thanks in advance, everyone!

      My article was published (my first one!)! Hooray! And I do have some Florentine restaurant recommendations including the new Osteria del Pavone which is amazing--lampredotto ravioli is now a thing and it must be tried.
