This is my new favorite soup! I went out to lunch with my girlfriend and they served it. I came home and made it for supper...mmm... and it's quick, too.
I used the ground sausage..... so good! ~Linda

Italian Wedding Soup

1 pound ground sausage or ground beef
2 egg, lightly beaten
3 slices of bread to make crumbs
3 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon dried basil
2 T chopped onion or you could use onion powder
10 - 12 cups chicken broth ( I used 2 boxes of free-range chicken broth)
2 cups chopped spinach
1/3 cup finely chopped carrot

It calls for orzo or small noodles, but I used 3 whole wheat tortillas sliced thinly (1/4 in or so)

1 In medium bowl, combine meat, egg, bread crumbs,
cheese, basil and onion ; shape into 3/4 inch balls.
2 In large saucepan, heat broth to boiling; stir in
spinach, chopped carrot and meatballs. Return to
boil, then reduce heat to medium. Cook at slow boil for 10
minutes. Stir frequently.
3. Add thinly sliced whole wheat tortilla 'noodles' and cook 1 minute.

Serve immediately with a little parmesan sprinkled on top.

That sounds AWESOME!!! I've been craving it ever since I saw a not-so-legal can of it at the grocery store. I'm going to try VitaSpelt spaghetti noodles broken into small pieces in lieu of the orzo. Thank you!!!
