As the weather starts to cool down and finally feel like fall, what better way to warm up than with a nice hot bowl of homemade soup? Mamma Maria is back and she’s brought a taste of Italy right to Eye Opener to celebrate Italian American Heritage Month.

What is it about moms and their homemade soup? Is it the amazing seasoning, fresh ingredients, or the genuine love they add to their dishes? With Mamma Maria, you can count on all of that plus her knowledge of authentic and delectable Italian dishes. Today, she whipped up some of her famous chicken pizzaiola and zuppa di fagioli, which includes an entire garden! Think potatoes, carrots, celery, and beans all boiling in a pot of steaming soup stock — mmm, the perfect soup for fall. And the best part? Vegetarian friendly.

Stomach rumbling yet? Visit Mamma Maria Ristorante Italiano on East Passyunk in South Philadelphia and get a taste for yourself!

Tune into Eye Opener on weekdays from 6 to 8 a.m.
