My ex-sister in law introduced my family to this comfort food. She said it's the Italian version of chicken soup, when you don't feel well.

I haven't made it in years, but thanks for the recipe, peep!

Copied and saved!

When I got home from work last night, I realized I didn't have anything thawed for dinner.

But I had half a box of orzo and the rest of the stuff to make this dish.

It hit the spot!

I had some left over that I mixed with leftover mushrooms sautéed in butter - excellent combo!
