A Good Bowl of Soup


This is our family’s favorite soup, a very garlicky Italian Wedding Soup.  This really is a meal in a bowl, along with a whole lot of warming comfort. 

This recipe makes enough to feed 8.

Italian Wedding Soup

For the meatballs:

1 lb. lean ground beef or turkey, or a combination of both

1/4 C. bread crumbs

1 egg

1 Tbsp. Worcetershire sauce

1 clove garlic, minced fine

salt and pepper to taste

In a medium mixing bowl, combine all ingredients and combine thoroughly.  Shape into meatballs as small as you can.  ( I use a very small ice cream scooper that is meant specifically for truffle-making.)

In a large pot,  on medium heat 2 tbsp. olive oil.  Lightly brown the meatballs, about 5 minutes.  When all sides are brown, add:

3 cartons (26 oz.) Beef Stock (I used Swanson’s stock, not broth)

1 slivered garlic clove

4-5 handfuls of baby spinach

2 cups *cooked* small pasta such as pastina, orzo or acini di pepe

Taste, and adjust seasonings if necessary and serve steaming hot, garnished with a little parmesan cheese. 

Soup’s on…
