A note about serious food allergies

We love Italian Wedding, or “married” soup so much, we decided to reinvent it as a pasta dish. We've kept the spirit, but changed some of the parts. Ditalini is traded in for ziti, and kale is upgraded to fresh Swiss chard. However, the best parts remain the same: the savory pork and rich Italian flavors, including cheesy, nutty Parmesan, making this “marriage” just as loving and successful as the soup variety.
