Among the many recipes that Grandmom Pino taught my mother, Maria Giordano, after Mom came to America as the first Italian war bride in 1944 was a delicious chicken ricotta soup which she affectionately called Sicilian soup to honor Grandmom’s birthplace near Messina, Sicily.

Growing up, Sicilian soup, thickened with rice, became a trusted mainstay as comfort food for the family.
