Did you know?

So why is it called “wedding soup,” anyways? The name for this traditional favorite actually comes from the Italian phrase “minestra maritata,”  which literally means “married soup.” That’s not because of its association with weddings, though! It’s because of the “marriage” of flavors produced by the vegetables and broth and how well they pair.
