Italian Wedding Soup


  • 1-2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 chopped onion

  • 2 chopped carrots

  • 6-8 cups chicken broth

  • 1 package (or 6 cups) baby spinach, washed

  • 1 package cooked pearl or Israeli couscous

  • About 20 thawed party size meatballs (feel free to adjust quantity)
1) Heat olive oil in pan. Saute onions and carrots (add a little salt and pepper) until soft (about 8 minutes).

2) Add meatballs and cook 2 minutes until flavors begin to release.

3) Add spinach and cook until it begins to wilt. Add chicken broth and cook about 15 minutes.

4) Pour couscous (about 1/3 cup per bowl) into individual bowl and top with soup.

5) Store couscous separately as it absorbs a lot of the liquid from the soup!
