Egg Ribbon & Parmesan Soup

This is one of the easiest and most comforting soups you can make after a long day at school or work. If you have eggs, you have a meal. Purchase low sodium chicken broth but homemade is best. Students, buy the best quality Parmesan cheese you can afford (and preferably not the one in the "green" can.)


  • 3 eggs
  • 3 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese, plus a little more for garnish
  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 3/4 cup tiny pasta (such as stars, acini de pepe or orzo)
  • Chopped fresh Italian parsley, optional, especially if you are a student


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together eggs and 3 tbsp Parmesan cheese to blend.
  2. In a large pot, bring chicken broth to a simmer.  Add pasta.  Cover and simmer about 6 minutes until pasta is tender.
  3. Gradually add egg mixture to soup, stirring constantly until egg ribbons form, about 1 minute.  Stir one minute longer.
  4. Ladle into bowls, and sprinkle with parsley if using.  Garnish with additional Parmesan cheese.
