Italian Wedding Soup

Sorry for the relative absence. Sous chef has been out of town this week. I cooked one recipe for myself that I didn't think he'd miss, but I was wrong. I've never heard of Italian Wedding Soup, but I googled it and apparently it's pretty common. There were a lot of different recipes for it. It's awesome! I had all of the ingredients at home, so no extra trips to the grocery (I left out the celery). Spinach and carrots leftover from recipe last week, pasta was on sale at Kroger for $.99 a carton a few weeks ago so I stocked up on all the pastas I thought I would ever need. For the broths, I like to use bouillon cubes because I can keep that stocked in the pantry without taking up much room. 

It includes a side recipe for mini meatballs that are delicious:

Combine all other ingredients into a large pot then add the meatballs. 
I love the orzo pasta in this soup. I've cooked with it once before and I accidently overcooked it making a big block of pasta. I've been afraid to use it again since that little incident. 

The recipe makes 12 servings and I've been eating about 2 servings a day. You can freeze some if you want, but I was saving some for when Bradley gets home. 

Calories: 153, fat: 3g. I love it!
I give it two thumbs up!


  1. Awesome recipe! can't wait to try it. It looks delicious!! So glad I found your blog :)

  2. This is one of our family favorites--in fact, my daughter turned up her nose when I was testing the recipe, and once she tasted it, she thought it was the best and makes it herself!
