Clean Eating Recipe of the Week- Italian Wedding Soup




I am so ready for fall so I thought I would give you a great, easy fall soup recipe.

Ingredients

1/2 (15-ounce) can Italian-style diced tomatoes with garlic, oregano and basil
6 cups organic low sodium vegetable or chicken broth
4 ounces whole wheat or brown rice elbow pasta
1 (16-ounce) package frozen regular or vegan meatballs
3 cups fresh organic spinach or swiss chard, roughly chopped
2 teaspoons dried Italian seasoning
Sea salt and ground black pepper
2-3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese (optional)

Method

Bring the tomatoes and broth to a boil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Simmer 10 minutes. Add pasta, meatballs, spinach and Italian seasoning and cook until the pasta is tender and meatballs are cooked through, about 8 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Ladle into bowls and serve. Sprinkle with Parmesan if desired.
