From someone who spent three years living in Italy and despises "Italian food" in America, this soup left me gape-mouthed. From the first spoonful I felt as though I could've been in a family run restaurant in Florence where I lived. I gaff at those in Michigan who offer to take me to an Italian restaurant here...nothing ever compares, let alone finding a canned soup that takes me back to the motherland. Seriously. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! Now if only I can resist the temptation to pass it off as homemade to my family and friends...Saluti!
