Found this on It looks and tastes just like what I get at a little Mom & Pop sub shop here in Jupiter that is very popular. Every Wednesday they serve this soup and it is soooo good! So comforting on a rainy day (or any day) and wonderful on the inside! haha! I made this soup today for the crew at work and it was a hit!

pinch tips: How to Clean Pots and Pans


2 tsp
olive oil
1/4 c
onion (chopped)
garlic cloves (minced)
salt and pepper
bag baby spinach (or 1/2 carton frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed dry of excess moisture)
2 Tbsp
parmesan cheese
46 oz
chicken broth
1/2 c
small pasta (ancini di pepe)
1/2 lb
mini meatballs, cooked

Directions Step-By-Step

Heat olive oil in a big soup pot on medium low heat. Add onion, a dash of salt & pepper, and saute for 3-4 minutes, or until onions are translucent. Add garlic and cook for an additional minute, stirring constantly.
Add entire bag of spinach to the pot, stir to coat with oil, add a couple more dashes of salt & pepper and allow spinach to wilt and cook 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Whisk eggs and parmesan cheese together in a small bowl. Set aside.
When spinach is cooked, add chicken broth to pot and bring to a boil. Add pasta and cook until al dente, about 7-8 minutes. Add mini meatballs and cook for an additional minute, or until heated through.
Stream egg and cheese mixture into soup and stir gently in a circular motion. Allow egg to cook for an additional minute.
Ready to eat!
(if you make your own meatballs, drop them in chicken broth with the pasta and let them cook together for the same amount of time)

I love Italian Wedding Soup! The place I used to get it made fresh to order, closed down. I suppose I will attempt to make it myself.

All I recommend is doing half stock and half water found it to be too strong of broth flavour.

DearTeresa, thank you for sharing this quick, tasty wonderful wedding soup. I don't want to mislead you here. I haven't made it yet but I'm a seasoned cook and know a good recipe when I see it. Wedding soup is my absolute favorite but it is a lot of work and takes a long time, that is if you use the old recipes I've been using. But, it seems that with this recipe I'll be eating this lovely treat within a very short time. Got any hints for the little meatballs or a nice recipe for them. I make so many when I do it that again it takes forever. I'm going to try this very soon in fact the only thing I don't have is the spinach. I'll let you know how it came out for me. Let me know about those meatballs. Thanks again. Lorraine
