Think of this as a first-rate chicken soup with mini-meatballs and loads of flavor.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup chopped onion

  • 1/2 cup chopped celery

  • 1 cup diced carrots

  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic

  • 8 cups fat-free chicken broth

  • 1 1/2 cups beef broth

  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano leaves

  • 1 cup orzo pasta

  • 6 cups fresh baby spinach

  • 1 pound ground sirloin

  • 1 egg

  • 1 egg white

  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley

  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic

  • 1/4 cup Italian bread crumbs

  • 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

  • salt and pepper to taste

    Instructions

  1. Combine the last 8 ingredients in a bowl and shape meat mixture into 1-inch diameter meatballs.

  2. In large nonstick pot coated with nonstick cooking spray, sauté onion, celery, carrots and garlic until tender, 7 minutes.

  3. Add both broths and oregano. Add orzo. Bring to boil, reduce heat, and cook 5 minutes.

  4. Add mini meatballs, and continue cooking 8 minutes or until meatballs are done. Add spinach, cooking a few more minutes until wilted. Season to taste.
