    Lainey6605's Note:

    This takes a little advance preparation, but it is great to come home to after a long day. Pastina and acini di pepe pasta is very small pasta and can be added the last hour or so of the cooking time.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Meatballs

    Soup

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Meatballs: Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    2. 2
      Mix all ingredients together.
    3. 3
      Form into very small balls (I get approximately 90 meatballs from 1 pound ground beef. I bake mine on a nonstick cookie sheet and turn them half-way through the cooking time).
    4. 4
      Bake about 10-15 minutes, until the meatballs have browned but are still soft (watch closely).
    5. 5
      Remove from oven and drain on paper towel, if necessary.
    6. 6
      Soup: Place all of the ingredients, except the pasta and escarole or spinach, into the crock pot with meatballs.
    7. 7
      Cook on low for 8 hours (Add pasta and escarole or spinach during the last hour of cooking and salt to taste, if necessary).
    8. 8
      Remove bay leaves.
    9. 9
      Top each serving with grated parmesan or romano cheese.
    10. 10
      Note: The meatballs must be prepared before being put into the crock pot (make them the night before and put them in the refrigerator, or even keep a batch in the freezer. I basically prepare as much as I can in advance so all I have to do is just put it all in the crock pot in the morning).

      I made this soup to serve 30-40 people for our Italian daughter-in-law's wedding shower. I didn't change anything and everyone was wowed! I love it and see no reason to try any other now. Thanks for posting!

      Boy this was really good! I doubled the pasta and just eyeballed the amount of spinach. I also used precooked Tyson chicken strips chopped up which worked well. Italian wedding soup is one of my favorite soups, but I never tried to make it before. This will be my "go to" recipe from now on!
