Greek Wedding Soup Recipe
This recipe is adapted from Rachel Ray’s fabulous Greek Wedding Soup. I made some additions and substitutions and changed the ingredient portions up a tiny bit. This lemony meatball soup turned out wonderful. Rachel’s original recipe can be found here.
Inspired by The Marriage Plot
