DIRECTIONS

  • BROTH:
  • To make broth boil water, add chicken, whole celery sticks, bouillon & boil for 45 minutes take out chicken & let cool, drain the broth into another pan through a strainer. This is your homemade broth, throw away celery & take of the skin of chicken and pull of the meat from the bone & set to the side until ready to add back to broth.
  • MEATBALLS:
  • Mix ground beef or g. turkey, egg, parsley, garlic & bread crumbs. Now take a small melon baller to make the same size meatballs every time & scoop put & roll into balls & pan fry until browned on the outside. Set them aside & drain on paper towels after browned until ready to add to broth.
  • PASTA:
  • In a small pot boil water with salt & add pasta cook as directed on the box, probably 8 mins drain through strainer.
  • Chop 2 cups each of celery & carrots.
  • Now add all ingredients back into broth -- celery, carrots, shredded chicken, lil meatballs & bring to boil then simmer for 25 minutes.
  • at the end you'll prob add a few more cups of water to the broth & add to handfuls of chopped spinach.
  • I ALWAYS serve with fresh parmesan that melts in the broth & is delish!
  • You can always add some fresh basil when serving also! I usually have fresh bread with evoo & italian herbs to dip bread in & this is a wonderful meal!
  • ENJOY.
