Italian Wedding Soup Recipe
  • Add all the meatball ingredients together in a large bowl. Mix the ingredients together using your hands until evenly distributed.
  • Form meat into small meatballs by rolling in your hands.
  • Place the meatballs on a lightly greased shallow baking pan. Place in an oven preheated to 350 degrees F and bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until browned.
  • Note: The meatballs can also be browned on the stovetop if desired.
  • Cook soup pasta as directed on the package. Do not overcook. The pasta should be firm when added to the soup.
  • Drain the pasta after cooking.
  • While the pasta is cooking add the chicken broth to a large saucepan and bring to a boil.
  • If using fresh spinach, add to the boiling broth and cook for 5 minutes or until spinach is tender. If using frozen spinach, drain well before adding to the broth.
  • Add the meatballs and pasta. Bring the soup back to a simmer.
  • Stir in the Parmesan cheese and serve.
