Italian Wedding Soup Recipe

  Italian Soup

1/2 lb. sweet Italian sausage
1/2 c. Italian bread crumbs
1 egg
1/4 t. oregano
1/4 t. dried parsley
1/4 t. garlic powder
Dash of salt and pepper
1 T. olive oil
1/3 c. water
2 c. cooked pastina
2 qt. canned chicken broth
1 chicken bouillon cube
1/2 c. frozen spinach, thawed, squeezed
or 1 c. fresh spinach chopped roughly

Meatballs- Mix first seven ingredients in bowl. Form bitesized meatballs. Saute in olive oil over medium heat until lightly browned. Add water, reduce heat, cover and simmer for 3 minutes.

Soup- Place chicken broth, bouillon, cooked pastina, spinach and drained meatballs in large pot. Bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes.
I don't suppose this is the "authentic" wedding soup recipe - but it's delicious! Serve w/crusty Italian bread, of course.
