Italian Wedding Soup
I happen to like the Italian Wedding soup at East Side Mario's so I found this recipe on line (as it was a long time ago I no longer know the source) this recipe is similar and now one of my favorites. Try it you will not be disappointed.
Recipe type: Soup
Serves: 8
  • For the meatballs:
  • 1 lb. lean ground beef
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • ¼ cup breadcrumbs
  • 2 tablespoon grated Parmesan
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 3 tablespoon minced onion
  • For the soup:
  • 12 cup chicken broth
  • 2 cup spinach, chopped fine
  • 1 cup dry small pasta
  • ¾ cup diced carrots
  • prepared meatballs
  • dash of onion and garlic powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. For the meatballs:
  2. In medium bowl, combine beef to onion and shape into small meatballs. Bake 350 for 20-25 minutes
  3. For the Soup:
  4. In large stockpot, heat broth to boiling and stir in everything else, except pasta. Cook pasta separately and add in at the end. Simmer soup for 30 minutes. Add pasta and cook for 5 more minutes. Serve warm
You can substitute Kale for the spinach. One plus of this soup is that it stirs up very quickly. But don't let that deter you from letting it simmer and giving that wonderful smell to the house. However long you simmer it, just be sure to put the pasta end at the end or it will get way too bloated.
