“That's Dom DeLuise's Mamma. The recipe originated in Spinosa, Italy. If you want a carnivorous variation, you can some spareribs and/or Italian sausages with the garlic, and brown well before adding anything else. To make this completely vegetarian, use vegetable stock in place of chicken stock. You can add water or a little more broth if the soup is too thick. Serve with hot Italian bread.”
