Simple Italian Wedding Soup

simple italian wedding soup on katy's kitchen
It's finally soup weather! I love soups, but I'm always intimidated make them. I feel like lots of recipes list 20+ ingredients or require simmering in the crock pot all day. A friend and I decided to make dinner together and she recommended this soup. It was surprisingly easy and totally delicious! I believe that soup is good for the soul and this simple soup (inspired by Giada) will save you some time and stress too!
Ingredients:
1/2 white onion chopped 
1/4 c chopped fresh parsley
1 clove minced garlic
1 t salt
1 slice fresh white bread, torn into small pieces
1/4 c grated parmesan
8 oz. lean ground beef
1 t pepper

10 c chicken broth
4 c baby spinach
salt and pepper
2 T Italian seasoning
grated parmesan

Directions:
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl mix the onion, parsley, garlic, salt, bread pieces, beef, cheese, and pepper. Shape into small meatballs (1 in diameter). Put on a baking sheet. Place in the oven. Bake for 20-25 minutes. 
2. In a large pot, add in the chicken broth and bring to a boil. Add in the baby spinach and cover to let it wilt. Once the meatballs are done, add them into the soup. Add in 2 T Italian seasoning and season with salt and pepper to taste. 
3. Serve with bread and topped with grated parmesan. 

So simple and delicious! You can always add more veggies and a small pasta (like orzo) if you want to make it heartier.
