"This is my favorite soup recipe that I started making after, funnily enough, I got married! The local paper published it, too. Garnish with parsley, and serve!"

  1. Mix pork, beef, egg white, bread crumbs, and Italian seasoning together in a bowl. Form very small, pea-sized meatballs.
  2. Heat oil in a soup pot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add carrots, celery, parsnip, onion, herbes de Provence, red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper. Cook and stir until vegetables are soft, 7 to 10 minutes.
  3. Pour chicken broth into the pot; bring to a boil. Add the mini meatballs and orzo pasta. Reduce heat to low; let simmer until flavors combine, 15 to 20 minutes. Add spinach; cook until wilted, 2 to 3 minutes. Garnish with Parmesan cheese.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Feel free to mix and match pork, veal, and beef to make the meatballs.
  • Use homemade chicken stock if possible.
  • Sometimes, instead of making the actual meatballs, I cheat and just make mini balls from sausage.
