  • Here's our version:

    Italian Sausage and Spinach Soup

    28 to 32 oz. chicken broth
    1/3 c. diced onions or 1 1/2 Tbsp. dry minced onion
    10 oz. package frozen chopped spinach
    1/2 lb. hot or sweet Italian sausage, crumbled, cooked and drained
    8 oz. tomato sauce
    grated parmesan cheese for garnish

    In a saucepan, combine all the ingredients except for the cheese. Bring to a boil. Simmer for 15 minutes if you can stand to wait that long (it smells really delicious). Sprinkle a bit of parmesan cheese on each serving.

    Directions

    To make the meatballs: Stir the first 6 ingredients in a large bowl to blend. Stir in the cheese, beef and pork. Using 1 1/2 teaspoons for each, shape the meat mixture into 1-inch-diameter meatballs. Place on a baking sheet.

    To make the soup: Bring the broth to a boil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add the meatballs and curly endive and simmer until the meatballs are cooked through and the curly endive is tender, about 8 minutes. Whisk the eggs and cheese in a medium bowl to blend. Stir the soup in a circular motion. Gradually drizzle the egg mixture into the moving broth, stirring gently with a fork to form thin stands of egg, about 1 minute. Season the soup to taste with salt and pepper.

    Ladle the soup into bowls and serve. Finish soup with parmesan cheese if desired.

    Directions

    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

    For the meatballs, place the ground chicken, sausage, bread crumbs, garlic, parsley, Pecorino, Parmesan, milk, egg, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper in a bowl and combine gently with a fork. With a teaspoon, drop 1 to 1 1/4-inch meatballs onto a sheet pan lined with parchment paper. (You should have about 40 meatballs. They don't have to be perfectly round.) Bake for 30 minutes, until cooked through and lightly browned. Set aside.

    In the meantime, for the soup, heat the olive oil over medium-low heat in a large heavy-bottomed soup pot. Add the onion, carrots, and celery and saute until softened, 5 to 6 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the chicken stock and wine and bring to a boil. Add the pasta to the simmering broth and cook for 6 to 8 minutes, until the pasta is tender. Add the fresh dill and then the meatballs to the soup and simmer for 1 minute. Taste for salt and pepper. Stir in the fresh spinach and cook for 1 minute, until the spinach is just wilted. Ladle into soup bowls and sprinkle each serving with extra grated Parmesan

    Meanwhile, break spaghetti into 4 inch long pieces and cook according to package directions; drain.
