I had a request to make Italian wedding soup yesterday and I realized I had never made it before. I will be making it often because everyone loved it. Start by making meatballs. I mixed 1 pound of ground beef with a diced small onion, 1 tsp. granulated garlic, 1 egg, 8 crushed crackers, S&P and 1/2 tsp. oregano. Mix this together thoroughly and set aside.
Dice about 5 garlic cloves.
Dice 1 onion.
Saute them in 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Add a large bag of spinach, cover the pot and let it cook down.
Add about 8 cups of good chicken broth. I used homemade but you can use store bought. If so, add 2-3 cubes of chicken bouillon. Bring to a low boil.
Form the meat mixture into small meatballs.
Drop the meatballs into the soup.
Add 1 cup of a small pasta. I used these tiny tubes. Let the soup cook for 8 minutes until the pasta is tender.
Mix 2 eggs with 1/4 cup of Parmesan cheese. Drizzle this mixture into the soup as you swirl it with a spoon. Serve with extra Parmesan cheese. This s some serious comfort food.
