5-Minute Stracciatella Soup

This 5-minute stracciatella soup is my go-to for a quick and easy family lunch on a cold winter day. My version of this comforting Italian classic is made with eggs, zucchini, grated parm and a little pastina (tiny star pasta). Give it a try and tell me what you think.

The following recipe serves 4.


Straciatella, an Italian egg drop soup, is made using very few ingredients…so be sure to splurge a big and use high-quality stock, eggs, and cheese.

  • 32 ounces of vegetable or chicken stock
  • 6 eggs lightly beaten
  • 2 large zucchini diced
  • 1/4 cup of Pastina (tiny pasta in the shape of stars)
  • 1/2 cup of grated parm or pecorino romano
  • 1/4 cup of chopped parsley (optional)


  1. Bring the stock to a boil, add the pastina, reduce to a simmer and let the pastina cook for 2 minutes.
  2. Add zucchini and let cook for 2 minutes.
  3. While the zucchini cook, mix together the grated cheese and the lightly beaten eggs.
  4. Start swirling the water with a whisk and then slowly add the egg and cheese mixture.
  5. Allow eggs to cook for 1 minute. Turn off the heat, serve and top with parsley.
