I took this amazing soup by Giada DeLaurentiis and added my own spin on it. The meatballs in this soup are so wonderful because of the combination of pork & beef. I've substituted frozen spinach for the traditional kale because I prefer it, but you can add the kale if you'd like. This is a "must try" recipe!

This was fantastic!! I used all beef because I had no pork on hand and I cut back on the broth a little to 10 cups. I decided I wanted orzo pasta in it too and I cooked the orzo first in the broth then drained it and returned the broth to the pot to cook the meatballs in
