Italian Wedding Soup
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 2 teaspoons garlic or 2-3 cloves minced
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 4 oz orzo pasta
  • 2 stalks kale or escarole (chopped)
  1. In a medium bowl mix ground beef with breadcrumbs, garlic, egg, and oregano.
  2. Portion and roll into meatballs. I used a 2 tablespoon size for this, sometimes I make them 1 tablespoon size.
  3. Brown meatballs in a 4 qt saucepan then add in chicken broth and orzo.
  4. Bring to a boil over high heat, then turn to medium to medium-low heat and cook pasta and meatballs 10 minutes.
  5. Add kale or escarole and serve.
