Ingredients
Meatball Ingredients:
  • 1 lb 95/5 lean ground pork
  • 1/2 lb 93/7 grass fed ground beef
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/3 cup Italian panko bread crumbs
  • 1/3 cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 egg
  • Salt/pepper to taste
Soup Ingredients:
  • 1/2 cup acini de pepe (preferably whole wheat if you can find it)
  • 1 quart low sodium chicken broth (I used O Organics brand)
  • 1 quart unsalted chicken stock (I used Kitchen Basics Unsalted Chicken Stock)
  • 1 medium yellow onion chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups carrots diced
  • 1 cup celery diced
  • 12 oz frozen spinach
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • Salt/pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Combine all meatball ingredients, then roll into 3/4-inch meatballs. Set aside.
  2. In a deep pot, heat olive oil over medium high heat. Add carrots, onion, celery, and garlic and sauté until carrots begin to soften, about 5 minutes. Add chicken stock, chicken broth, and oregano and bring to a boil.
  3. Once stock has reached a boil, drop the meatballs into the liquid and cook for about 4 minutes before adding acini de pepe and frozen spinach. Continue cooking an additional 6-8 minutes until the pasta is cooked al dente and the meatballs are cooked through.
  4. Remove from heat and top with parmesan cheese before serving if desired.
