Italian Wedding Soup

I saw this recipe and thought yum!
You need :
Meatballs- 1lbs of lean ground beef or turkey
1/2 cup Italian breadcrumbs
1/2 cup BBQ sauce
1/4cup grated parm cheese

Preheat oven to 350
Mix all that together and form small
Meatball and line on a cookie sheet
Bake in oven 15 min

Orzo pasta
8 cups chicken broth
Garlic minced 1-2 cloves
Salt & pepper, to taste
One bag spinach
Parmesan cheese
One onion thinly sliced

Next you'll need 8 cups of chicken broth. Bring that to a boil and add some minced garlic (1-2 cloves or tbsp) season to taste with salt & pepper. Meanwhile thinly slice an onion and sweat it in a pan with extra Virgin olive oil and butter till tender and transparent. When the broth boils add your orzo pasta to the pan. I used a half of a package. It was good ratio to the broth. When the pasta boils for about 8 min the meatballs should be ready. Let them sit for a min and add to the broth. Turn it down to medium low heat. The original recipe calls for escarole but I used spinach (a whole bag) sliced up and added in the last few minutes of cooking. Also add your onions! Serve in a large colorful bowl! Add some grated Parmesan cheese and enjoy!
