Italian Wedding Soup is a great way to start any meal or simply add in a loaf of crusty bread and a salad and you’ve got a delicious healthy light dinner! But no matter when you serve it or for what occasion you’re sure to get smiles from your guests down to the very last spoonful.
Wouldn’t your family enjoy a bowlful of this Italian Wedding soup?
Let’s start by gathering the ingredients for the soup (I forgot the breadcrumbs for the meatballs).
As with most soups, you start with a mirepoix, diced carrots, celery and onions. Simmer the veggies about 5 minutes.
After letting the soup simmer for about an hour, its time to add the escarole and if you want to make it a little heartier for dinner add in your favorite tortellini or mini ravioli.
I used a three cheese tortellini but feel free to use your favorite. You could also use rice, leftover risotto, or any other small pasta shape you enjoy.
Whether you serve this for dinner, lunch or you’re next party everyone is going to love the simplicity and flavors of this Italian Classic. Just don’t forget to have plenty of crusty bread, European butter and Romano cheese on hand, throw in a salad and you just made dinner a special occasion.
Homemade soups are easy to make. Using leftovers to create deliciousness in your kitchen’s soup pot. What is your favorite soup?
