    Did not use garlic cloves because here they all come from China instead I used minced garlic ail made in Ontario CA, Instead of parmesan cheese I used finely shredded cheese,(pizza mozzarella, asiago, provolone and parmesan). The soup is very delicious.

    This is one of my favorite soups and this sounds like a wonderful recipe. I will have to adapt it slighly - I am allergic to wheat but with a few adjustments I know it will be awesome! Thanks for the 5 post!

    I LOVE Italian Wedding soup and could probably eat it everyday and never grow tired of it. I like to use escarole instead of spinach. Thanks for the yummy recipe! (P.S. My in-laws live in Tom's River)
