Ingredients

  • 500 grams (1 pound) ground beef
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped

  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

  4. Add the chopped spinach and pasta to the pot and cook for an additional 5-7 minutes, or until the pasta is tender.
  5. Season the soup with salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Serve hot and enjoy!

Notes/Tips

Italian Wedding Soup is a versatile dish, so feel free to customize it to your liking. You can add other vegetables such as carrots or celery, or even substitute the ground beef with ground turkey or chicken for a lighter version. This soup also freezes well, so you can make a big batch and save some for later.

I hope you enjoy making and eating this delicious Italian Wedding Soup as much as I do. Buon appetito!
