Italian Wedding soup
This rich, elegant soup serves 4-6--that is, the bridal couple plus the best man and maid of honor--or the bridal couple with parents. Make more for a traditional Italian wedding party. Serve it hot--and assemble at the table for a grand effect.
Beat the butter, eggs, and nutmeg, then whip in the grated cheese. Gradually beat in the cream, spoonful by spoonful.
Bring the broth to a simmer. Lighten the cream mixture with 1/4 cup of the hot broth, then stir the cream-broth into the simmer pot, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat and continue stirring, as it thickens up a little bit. Season to taste. Stir in reserved pasta. Ladle into bowls and serve immediately for luck and love to the happy couple and their wedding party.
