Skinny Wedding Soup

Skinny Wedding Soup

This winter weather has been pretty brutal in the Chicago area!  Waking up every morning to negative temperatures has left me yearning for some warm, comforting soup!  My family has always loved Wedding soup...but my pre-healthy version was pretty high in calories!  I decided to "skinny" my recipe and the results were yummy!  My family didn't mind the missing saturated fats and I loved that it had less than half of the calories from my original recipe!
