Mama's Italian Wedding Soup
Yum! We're moving soon, and I was trying to figure out ways to use frozen Italian meatballs other than just with pasta/red sauce. I also had frozen spinach and frozen crinkle-cut carrots, so this was perfect.
I used my last 2 cartons of low sodium chicken broth + 2 cups water + 2 chicken bouillon cube and brought it to a boil, then just added 20 or 24 frozen meatballs, 1 pkg frozen spinach, the 3/4 bag of carrots I had left, and 2 cups of small shell pasta (I like noodles a lot, but maybe next time only 1.5 cups). I also added a bit of basil, thyme, garlic salt, and onion powder, as I have a hard time not "spicing things up"... Boiled for 8-10 mins, until the noodles were soft. Couldn't have been easier!
Frozen meatballs are BIG, so I ended up cutting them into quarters once they were cooked (picked them up in Chinese soup spoon and kitchen-sheared them).
I asked my husband what he thought, and he said, "Meaty!" High praise indeed! ;)
