This is the best wedding soup ever, according to my son and husband! Rich chicken broth, shredded chicken, meatballs and pasta make for a hearty soup.

Ingredients

  • 4 Cups Homemade bone broth or chicken stock
  • 2 Cups water
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 carrots Chopped
  • 2 celery stalks Chopped
  • 1/2 Cup parsley Chopped
  • 1 teaspoon crushed garlic
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 1 Tablespoons chicken base or bouillon Optional
  • 1/2 Cup Acini Di Pepe (you can use orzo and any other small pasta if you like)
  • 2 Cups meatballs frozen
  • 1 Cup fresh spinach Chopped
  • 2 Cups Chicken cooked, Chopped

Instructions

  1. In a stock pot, add oil, carrots and celery. Saute for a few minutes then add your broth and water. Bring to slow boil and cook for 5 minutes. If you are using bouillon or chicken base, add it here.

  2. Add the frozen meatballs, spinach, garlic, ginger and parsley and continue to simmer for about another 5 minutes.

  3. Add pasta and cook for another 10 minutes. Lastly add the cooked chicken and cook for 5 more minutes. Make sure the pasta and the vegetables are cooked. I'm just estimating the time but you can add everything but the chicken and pasta at the beginning if you are pressed for time.

For the low carb version

  1. Use 2 eggs instead of the pasta. Just beat the eggs and slowly pour into the.  simmer soup at the end of the recipe. I also used 6 large Trader Joe's frozen meatballs. For nutritional information see above. You can make this lower carb by making your own meatballs and eliminating the carrots.
