Italian Wedding Soup

By maryjmckee

Although it CAN be served at weddings, the name "Italian Wedding Soup" is alluding to the fact that meat and vegetables simply are delicious together. The marriage of meat and vegetables in this dish certainly is one for the heavens.

Italian Wedding Soup
Ingredients
  • 1 Bag Italian frozen meatballs

  • 12 c. low-sodium chicken broth

  • 1 lb. fresh spinach

  • 2 large eggs

  • 2 Tbs freshly grated parmesan , plus extra for garnish

Of course you can add all the veggies you want, I also like to add navy or Great Northern beans with some fresh cilantro!

I never even knew this type of soup existed until a few years ago. Now, it is one of my favorites. I've never had a recipe and have been buying it by the can. Now I can cook it for myself. This recipe sounds quick, easy, and delicious.
