SOUP Italian Wedding




Yield 8-10 servings

This soup.  It might be my favorite out of all of our soups here at Vie.  There's just something really special about Italian Wedding Soup.

Maybe it's the mini meatballs?

Or the mini pasta?

Or even, perhaps, the addition of greens at the end to beef up the veg factor?

Whatever the case may be, I love this soup and it just seems perfect for this time of year because it's such a light alternative to the heavy meals most of us have been enjoying lately.

Feel free to play around with types of ground meat and pasta shape, you'll have a lot of fun making this!
