  • Summary

    Everyone loves Italian Wedding Soup, but the thought of making both the meatballs and the soup on a harried weeknight is a little daunting. So I love this shortcut Italian Wedding Soup recipe that uses flavorful sausage instead of the meatballs, while still using the fresh vegetables that makes this soup so nourishing. This is also excellent with 15 oz. diced tomatoes stirred in with the broth. Scramble recipe tester Amy Stanley said, “We all gave it 5 stars.

    Ingredients

    • 1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
    • 1/2 – 1 yellow onion (finely chopped (1 cup))
    • 3 carrots (halved (or quartered if large) and finely chopped (about 1 cup))
    • 2 stalks celery (thinly sliced (1 cup))
    • 12 oz. pre-cooked Italian turkey, chicken, or meatless sausage (use wheat/gluten-free if needed) (sliced into 1/2-inch slices)
    • 1 tsp. Italian seasoning blend (or more to taste)
    • 10 cups reduced-sodium chicken or vegetable broth
    • 1 cup orzo or use ditalini or other small pasta shape (use wheat/gluten-free if needed)
    • 6 oz. baby spinach, escarole, or arugula (or use 1 cup frozen spinach)
    • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese (for serving)
