Party Italian Wedding Soup

Made  times

"A large batch of traditional Italian Wedding soup. This soup offers plenty of meat, carbohydrates and veggies. Perfect with Italian bread. For the pasta, I use acini di pepe, but you could use any small shape you desire, like shells or orzo."

It's missing Parmigiano Reggiano. I would use fresh escarole, not frozen spinach. The other vegetables don't belong, neither does the chicken. And by all means, don't use canned chicken broth.

I changed some of the ingredients: I only used 1/2 of the bread crumbs called for and I used two eggs with the ground beef. I used chopped fresh kale instead of spinach due to the spinach shorta...

Loved this soup - perfect on a cold rainy night! I added a couple of tablespoons of pesto to the meatballs - they were fantastic. Used a 48oz can and 2 14oz cans of broth - might just use 2 larg...

This recipe is exactly what I wanted for Italian Wedding Soup. I always bought it canned and it was just too salty. This took a little while, but was completely worth it. I made a few changes p...
