Homemade Meatball Soup

Much like wedding soup, it is filling, flavorful and fun. I have slightly modified the recipe to suit my kid's taste. A favorite among even picky eaters. Bite size homemade meatballs made with lean ground turkey, a variety of vegetables, rich chicken broth stock nicely seasoned with herbs and everyone's most favorite - pasta. You will love this soup!!!!

8 cups homemade chicken stock

1 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped

Salt and black pepper to your taste

1 can (14.5-ounce) white beans, rinsed and drained

1 can (14.5-ounce) whole tomatoes, crushed with your hands, use the juice too

1 cup small pasta shape, uncooked

Meatballs:

1 lb lean ground turkey or chicken

1/2 cup wholewheat breadcrumbs or italian style

2 cloves of garlic, minced

2 eggs, lightly beaten

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp fresh black pepper

1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese, grated

Directions

1. Place a soup pot over medium high heat. Add the olive oil and heat. Add the chopped onion and carrots to the pot and cook, stirring with a spoon, until the vegetables are soft, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute.

2. Add crushed tomatoes and their juices, potatoes, drained beans, chicken stock, the herbs, salt and black pepper to your taste and stir to combine. Bring to a low simmer and simmer for 15 minutes.

3. While the soup simmers, make the meatballs. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the ground chicken or turkey, eggs, 1/2 cup Parmesan, bread crumbs, garlic, 1 teaspoon of the salt and 1/2 teaspoon of fresh black pepper. Using clean hands, mix until thoroughly combined.

4. Divide meat into tablespoons and roll into smooth balls with your hands. Set the rolled meatballs aside on a plate. Wash your hands.

5. Carefully add the meatballs to the simmering soup. Gently stir, so as not to break up the meatballs.

6. Add the uncooked pasta and simmer the soup for about 10-15 minutes or untill the pasta is just tender.
