Absolutely delicious! In lieu of fregola I used pearl couscous. I was making this for just a couple people, so I halved everything in the recipe (excluding the beans and pancetta) - it was a huge hit! Will definitely be making this again in the future!
This was really nice! Not mind-blowing, but it met my expectations. A nice soup for warmer weather days. I used orzo, added baby spinach for health & heft, and threw in some fresh dill as well. Don't skip the lemon.
Very similar to Italian Wedding soup but without the meatballs. The flavor was good but felt thin and flat. Needed more umami or fat. I drizzled olive oil on top when serving and that helped a bit but still needed something more.
When I saw this recipe it sounded so simple and fresh I added the ingredients to my shopping list. It is absolutely spectacular. I used the Israeli Couscous as suggested as I couldn't find Fregola. It tastes a little like an italian wedding soup - but all the fresh herbs really add a boost of flavor. Highly recommend.
