Note from Ricardo

The egg will be just cooked but still soft. The stringy texture of the egg, or straccetti in Italian, is what gives this classic soup its name.

This recipe can easily be adjusted for more portions. Simply keep the same ratios and multiply the ingredients by the number of portions needed. This soup does not freeze well.
