Try It Out Thursday: Italian Wedding Soup

Try it Out Thursday

Try It Out Thursday is dedicated to recipes, products or ideas that I find on Pinterest or receive in my e-mail. I tend to “pin” and save a lot of recipes and craft ideas and never try them so I decided that this will help me wade through the many pins and e-mails that I have.

I told you I’ve been craving soup! This soup came to mind because last week I asked one of my pastors what he was eating for lunch and he said, “Italian Wedding Soup.” It intrigued me with it’s little meatballs and spinach so I set out to find a recipe on Pinterest.

So, for Try It Out Thursday, I ended up going with the Italian Wedding Soup recipe from Larissa over at Just Another Day In Paradise. You should check out her blog. She’s got some really good stuff on it.

I didn’t change the recipe much except for adding one additional tablespoon of Parmesan cheese using fresh spinach instead of bagged spinach, ground turkey instead of ground beef and using mini Farfalle for my pasta choice. This soup turned out delicious. The Mister and I have eaten it for a few days now and the longer it sits in the refrigerator, the better it gets. I recommend eating it with a slightly toasted piece of French bread. It soaks up all the broth beautifully and tastes so good!

Here are my little meatballs. I got exactly 50 meatballs out of my pound of ground turkey.


I have stopped buying packaged greens and I only had fresh spinach. I just sliced it up and it worked really, really well.


My choice of pasta was mini Farfalle. Isn’t it just the cutest pasta ever?!


I was practically drooling while the soup was simmering. It’s so pretty to look at too.


If you’re craving soup, or if you’re thinking about what soup you can make for the first old front this fall, this is definitely one to have down in your books to try!
