If you're thinking about serving up a full course meal to company, then you've got to add our Escarole and Meatball Soup to the menu! This flavorful soup is full of color and flavor. It's an easy soup recipe that looks like it was made for special occasions.

What You'll Need

  • 1/2 pound ground beef
  • 1/4 cup Italian-flavored bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3/4 teaspoon black pepper, divided
  • 8 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh escarole or spinach
  • 2 medium carrots, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup tiny shell pasta
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

What to Do

  1. In a medium bowl, combine the ground beef, bread crumbs, water, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper; mix well then form into 1/2-inch meatballs.
  2. In a soup pot, combine the chicken broth, escarole, carrots, meatballs, and remaining 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to low and simmer, covered, for 30 minutes.
  3. Add pasta (see Note), increase heat to medium, and cook 8 to 10 minutes, or until pasta is tender. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, and serve.

Notes

If you're making this in advance, add the pasta while reheating so it doesn't absorb all the broth.
