Hey foodies, and if you're new here welcome! :) Let me show you how to make some Italian wedding soup. This traditional dish is packed with flavor and is perfect for any occasion.
1 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
8 cloves of garlic, minced
2 cups diced carrots
2 cups diced onions
1.5 cups diced celery
2 cups water
8 cups chicken broth
Mini meatballs (homemade or store-bought)
Salt, pepper, and garlic powder to taste
In a large pot, heat the extra virgin olive oil over medium-high heat.
Add in the minced garlic and sauté for 1-2 minutes until fragrant.
Next, add in the diced carrots, onions, and celery. Sauté for another 5-7 minutes until the vegetables are soft.
Pour in 2 cups of water and 8 cups of chicken broth. Bring to a boil.
Once boiling, add in the mini meatballs and pastina pasta. Reduce heat to medium-low and let simmer for 10-15 minutes until the pasta and meatballs are cooked through.
Add in the chopped spinach and season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder to taste.
Let simmer for an additional 5-10 minutes until the spinach is wilted and flavors have melded together.
Serve hot and enjoy your delicious homemade Italian wedding soup!
Tips and Tricks
For an extra flavor boost, try making your own mini meatballs using a mix of ground beef and pork.
If you're short on time, feel free to use store-bought mini meatballs instead of making them from scratch.
Don't have pastina pasta? Use any small shape of pasta you have on hand, such as orzo or ditalini.
If your soup is too thick, add in a little more chicken broth or water to thin it out.
Leftovers can be stored in the fridge for 3-4 days and reheated on the stovetop or in the microwave. Add a splash of chicken broth or water when reheating to prevent the pasta from getting too mushy.
More Italian Wedding Soup Inspiration
Want a more traditional version of Italian wedding soup? Try adding in some cooked acini di pepe pasta and escarole instead of spinach.
Looking for a lighter option? Use lean ground turkey for the meatballs and add in extra veggies like zucchini and mushrooms.
Want to make this soup vegetarian? Use vegetable broth instead of chicken broth and omit the meatballs. Add in some white beans for added protein.
Don't be afraid to experiment with different herbs and spices to customize the flavor of your Italian wedding soup. Fresh parsley, oregano, or thyme would all be great additions.
