Directions

  1. In a large bowl, mix the ground turkey, water, egg, 1/3 cup onion, bread crumbs, cheese, salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Shape the mixture into small 1-inch meatballs.
  3. In a large pot, combine the broth, carrots, celery, 1/2 large onion and bring them to a simmer. Add the orzo and let it cook for 5 minutes (pastina takes 2 minutes), stirring frequently.
  4. Add the meatballs and simmer them in broth for 15-20 minutes. Then stir in the spinach and simmer it until it's wilted, about 1 minute.
  5. (I also have added fresh parsley to the soup when I have it! - about 1/4 cup chopped).
