    I thought this sounded interesting and it's another way to use some garden oregano. Recipe source: Martha Stewart Living (December 2005)

      I cheated and used pre-made meatballs. I also used spinach. It was pretty good, but the broth seemed a little thin. DH was not a fan.

      Delicious! I used spinach, and tweaked the meatballs slighty to taste, the currants in the meatballs are a nice change but I wouldn't suggest to uncrease the amount, 1/4 cup is just perfect, I did cut a rough chop of the currants, I also added in fresh grated Parmesan to the meatballs. My DH will enjoy this for his lunch today! thanks ellie!...Kitten:)

      This ended up with mixed reviews. Mr Grumpy kept looking at the meatballs, but could not make up his mind - I think he did not realize there were currants in them, and I did not tell him. He hated the kidney beans and picked them all out. I felt the broth could use a little something, so I ended up adding a chopped onion and some celery flakes. I browned the meatballs and then poured in the broth and let them cook through - I think this adds more flavor. I did use spinach as I have a big bag of it, adding it just at the end, and topped each serving with a good amount of Parmesan.
