I don’t know about you, but when I see the word “zuppa”, I can practically smell the flavors of a rich broth and feel my skin tingling as I imagine the warming liquid sliding into my belly. Of course, this comforting soup, filled with roasted chicken, pillowy gnocchi and savory pesto, would be served by my long-lost Italian grandmother, next to a roaring fire, with the sound of Pavarotti carressing the notes of my favorite aria. Sigh…Okay, I don’t actually have an Italian grandmother, long-lost or otherwise, but I could probably conjure up at least a flickering fire and a Pavarotti aria or two.
