Meatball Soup

I saw a recipe for Meatball Soup online not too long ago and I knew Chris would love it. I decided to use my own recipe and I can not tell you just how good this was. It was 10 degrees out tonight so everything about this soup was comforting.

The meatballs were made from a pound of beef, a pound of pork, a cup of chopped up Italian bread, an egg, Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper. The ingredients were mixed and formed into meatballs, about an inch in diameter. They were just browned in a little olive oil. They would be cooked through in the soup.

For the soup I sauteed chopped onions, carrots and celery in olive oil until tender. Chicken broth and the browned meatballs were added to the pan. The broth simmered for about 1 and 1/2 hours uncovered so the liquid thickened a bit. I added chopped escarole and simmered that for 20 minutes. Then I added cooked pasta. To finish the soup I seasoned with the pot with salt and pepper to taste.

We had enough for tonight and we will have this again tomorrow night. And yes I did cut the carrots into the shape of hearts.  Why can’t every day can be Valentine’s Day!
