"This recipe was passed down from my grandmother, who was from Agnone, Italy. My mother taught me how to make this. There are several steps to this recipe, but it is worthwhile. Serve it with fresh Italian bread."

  1. In a large pot of boiling water, add the escarole and cook until it wilts (this removes the bitter taste from the greens). Remove from heat and strain the greens from the water. When cooled, squeeze out all excess liquid.
  2. In a separate pot over medium heat, bring the broth to a boil. In a separate large bowl, combine the ground beef, 1 egg, breadcrumbs, basil, parsley and 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese. Mix well and form into bite-size balls. Drop the balls into the broth. When they rise to the top, they are cooked.
  3. Add the escarole to the broth. In a separate bowl, combine the remaining 3 eggs with the remaining 1 cup of cheese. Pour this mixture into the soup, stirring continuously, until the egg is cooked.

My grandmother was from Agnone Italy and this was her recipe. She would never have put anything tomato in this recipe. That would be more like Minestrone, which is another excellent Italian soup...

I am giving this 5 stars because this is the only recipe that had the egg mixture in it. I combined the end of this recipe with the first part of 'Mama's Italian Wedding Soup' by Lalena. I also ...

This was a truley amazing dish...a technique that I used for this was to shock the spinach which i used in place of the escole. this is done by placing the spinach in ice water when straining o...

Great recipe...but remove the meatballs from the broth (after they are cooked) and before you add the escarole, put the egg mixture into the broth and cook it before you add the meatballs and es...

This is the closest thing to my Italian Grandmother's version - she owned three restaurants. The smaller you make the meatballs the better -- also we boil and shred chicken in the broth and add...

IT BROUGHT ME BACK TO MY CHILDHOOD, WHEN MY MOM WOULD MAKE THIS FOR US ON SPECIAL HOLIDAYS. I NEVER GOT THIS RECIPE FROM HER AND NOW I HAVE IT. THANK YOU, MY KIDS AND HUSBAND LOVE IT ...

I am giving this recipe 4 stars since it is the most like the soup I make. The other recipes on this web site do not come close to the soup my husband and I grew up with. The one glaring omiss...

This soup was bland with too much escarole, not enough broth, and the cheese/egg mixture made it gloppy and unappetizing (yes, I stirred while adding). It didn't look very appetizing and I threw...

This is the most similar to my own family's recipe for meatball soup. Ours never had pasta either. The only difference is that instead of the egg mixture, we make an egg-based crouton that tops ...
