Italian wedding soup


Sorry this is not a very pretty picture, but it is a very tasty soup that's easy to make. Here's my version of the recipe

Italian Wedding Soup
Meatballs:
1 lb lean gound beef
1/2 lb ground chicken
1/4 cup italian bread crumbs
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
1 egg
1 tsp dried oregano
Mix ingredients well then shape into tiny meatballs. (It will make A LOT of meatballs)
Meanwhile, bring 3 cans chicken broth and 2 quarts water to a boil. Drop meatballs into the boiling broth in batches of about 12-15 at a time. When they float to the top, remove with a slotted spoon and set aside.

After cooking all the meatballs, add one block of frozen spinach and 1/4 cup finely chopped onion to the soup. When the spinach is thawed, add 1/2 cup orzo pasta and cook 6 minutes or until tender. Then beat one egg with 1 teaspoon parmesan cheese. Drip the mixture into the boiling soup while stiring. Turn off heat and add the meatballs.

Serve hot with crusty bread.
