      This turned out really good. I doubled the recipe- except only used 2 tbsp of lemon juice and about 4 big handfuls of spinach instead of the escarole.
      I added about a tsp or so of Italian seasoning, 1 can of diced petite tomatoes & 1 can of kidney beans to the broth.
      I also added a handful of italian bread crumbs to the meatballs.
      Amazing recipe. Thanks for sharing- will make this again and again!

      I probably shouldn't rate this recipe because I made a lot of changes, but the resulting soup was fabulous. I had a bit of ground turkey leftover and the weather was cold enough to want soup. These meatballs couldn't have been easier. I did sub fresh baby spinach for the escarole and added a can of petite diced tomatoes with the broth. I also added a can of cannellini beans (drained and rinsed) to make the soup heartier for my hardworking hubby. A handful of spiral pasta also jumped into the pot with the orzo and was seasoned with a few dashes of an Italian seasoning. Mmmmm. It was great soup on a cool, rainy, spring night.
