June means weddings, and we’re celebrating with Italian Wedding Soup. As with many foods, the soup is not Italian and has nothing to do with weddings—its lovely name comes from a mistranslation of minestra maritata, which refers to the “marriage” of greens and meat. Add a light broth and Parmigiano cheese, and you have the stuff happy marriages are made of.

Italian Wedding Soup

Tiny turkey and Parmigiano Reggiano meatballs, bits of pasta, and garlicky escarole marry in this meal-in-a-bowl soup with a wonderfully romantic name.
