Mama's Italian Wedding Soup Recipe
Tiny meatballs made of ground beef, beaten egg, bread crumbs, and parmesan are combined with spinach, carrot, and pasta for this delicious Italian soup. No wedding required!
Beef meatballs, or albondigas, are simmered with lots of fresh vegetables in this old-fashioned soup that's perfect for a cold, rainy day.
Don't wait for a wedding to make this delicious and comforting soup with kale, tiny pasta, and tender little beef meatballs.
Make a little extra to send on the honeymoon! This lovely soup combines extra lean ground beef made into meatballs with thinly sliced escarole or spinach, orzo macaroni, and finely chopped carrot.
This recipe is a good start but a few small additions make for a terrific soup. In my experience, sauteing onions, garlic & celery is a must. It will add flavor to the chicken broth and is worth the extra effort. Dice the veggies finely and you've improved your soup before you've added a thing. Wedding Soup is a wonderful treat to come home to on a cold winter day. If you have family members who don't eat meat, you can substitute turkey for the ground beef. Thanks, Lalena. This is comfort food at its best.
This is an absolute wonderful recipe. I don't normally like any soup (chicken broth based) This one however I loved. My Grandfather whom was born in Italy would roll over in his grave and say, God Bless you Brenda for always keeping up with traditional Italian Foods. I made it this Mother's Day Weekend and my Momma, who's 80 years old and Italian of course like Gramps, was quite impressed. Being a diabetic she was happy with a soup that was nutritious and delicious! My Dad 83 years of age, loved it also. He has some peptic problems and this was gentle on his tummy. I pretty much followed this to the T, but I did add some fresh mushrooms,as well all my spices & onions & carrots where fresh from my garden! This is a keeper and I'm making it again this weekend so I can have some to bring for my lunches and also to my Mom & Dads! Thanks!!!!!
