Even when you’re crazy busy and cooking dinner is the last thing on your mind, this wonderful Italian egg drop soup makes your life so much easier and so flavorful!
I made my egg drop soup with pasta and chickpeas to make it more consistent and filling and I used whole wheat pasta to add a little bit more healthiness to my already healthy soup! Call me crazy but I love the abundance of greens in this Italian egg drop soup! I think it gives the soup much more appeal, making it simply irresistible!
We served our egg drop soup recipe simple, without any bread or a side dish but I totally see this working well with garlic bread and a large mixed greens salad with a lemon garlic vinaigrette. You could even add a touch of sour cream or yogurt if you like to make it a little bit more sour than it is.
