This is what I made up last night and Barry said it was better than East Side Mario's :D. This is so easy to whip together, you can use frozen precooked meat balls or make your own nice and fresh :D
1 lb. lean ground beef
2 eggs, beaten
¼ cup breadcrumbs
2 tablespoon grated parmesan cheese
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp garlic powder
salt and pepper
6 cups chicken broth
2 cup spinach, chopped
1 cup orzo
¾ cup diced carrots
1 tsp garlic powder, (i use granulated garlic)
1 tsp basil
1 tsp oregano
salt and pepper to taste
How To Make
Prepare your meat balls ahead of time.
In medium bowl, combine beef to onion and shape into small meatballs. You want them small enough to easily eat in a spoonful of soup. Bake 350 for 20 minutes
For your soup, In large stockpot, add your broth and everything else, except pasta. Bring to a boil then turn down and simmer for about 30 min. Add orzo and cook for about 10 more min or till orzo is cooked.
