This is really good, and quick to make, assuming your meatballs are made ahead of time. "20 meatballs" is kind of vague as it doesn't really indicate size - I ended up using 1 pound of ground turkey to make the meatballs. I do prefer smaller meatballs in my Italian Wedding Soup, so I ended up with about 50 meatballs. Not sure what size was intended? I used the "My Italian Turkey Meatballs" recipe from this site. The only change I made was to use regular broth (as opposed to low sodium) and it tasted perfect. The cook times were spot on. This makes 4 HUGE servings. You could easily get 6. Looking forward to leftovers!
This recipe is very good and so easy to make! I bet it's even faster if you have pre-made homemade meatballs. I used 1 LB ground turkey to make Italian meatballs (yielded about 30-35 meatballs). I thought I made them small enough for this soup, but next time, I would make them a little smaller (1/2" or 3/4"). I thought it might be lacking in salt by using no sodium broth, but I was wrong. The soup is full of flavor and so comforting on a cold day! I need to have Gluten Free and didn't have any GF Pastina, Acini di Pepe, or even Ditalini on hand, which I'll have to order online for the future. In a pinch, I used a small shell pasta, which worked out OK, but ya know...that's not the right pasta. :-) I look forward to making this recipe many more times in the future with the correct pasta. I think I'll go make some meatballs to have on hand at all times just for this soup! Thanks for the recipe.
This is fantastic! The whole family loved it and it was a lifesaver on a weeknight where I had nothing prepared. I have to admit that I used frozen Ikea chicken meatballs (I added them to the Instant Pot straight from the freezer) and didn't add herbs because I didn't have them and even so - this soup was PERFECT! Thank you for the recipe!
Definitely will make this again: I have a new quick soup recipe! Couldn't find the pastini in my grocery store so added Acini de Pepe instead. Also used Italian meatballs that were on sale at the same store (which came in a one pound package with 12 meatballs): divided each meatball in quarters SO used 48 meatballs which was perfect! Great recipe.
Absolutely wonderful. Italian wedding is one of my favorite soups. I made my own healthy Italian meatballs by using 1 pound of ground turkey one teaspoon of Italian seasoning one tablespoon of fennel seeds. mix it together . Roll tiny little balls bake in the oven at 3:50 for 15 minutes. Add to soup at appropriate time.
This was the first time I ever made wedding soup. It turned out fantastic. I substituted ditalini pasta and I must confess to using frozen mini Italian meatballs. I also used a little less spinach than the recipe and a bit more pasta.
As is, a little bland. I will use it again as a base, adding extra seasonings. I also recommend tearing or chopping the spinach into smaller pieces. For the meatballs, I purchased small (about 1 1/2") italian style and cut them up into quarters. I did not need 20. Maybe it would be better with home made meatballs.
