Excellent soup!

The was a great soup that my whole family loved. I made it from scratch tonight using ground chicken and the meatballs were very good. But a couple of weeks ago I made the soup then added frozen chicken meatballs that I had bought from Costco to save time. We are 8 but I had leftovers both times which I put in 2 C containers and then in the freezer.

very healthy, quick if you use premade meatballs

I saw this in a recent issue of the magazine and decided to try it. I'm so glad that I did. I used kale instead of the escarole because that was what they had at the market. Like another reviewer, I liked having the beans rather than the noodles. It seems healthier that way. It wasn't too salty like some other soups I've had recently. Don't leave out the fennel seeds. They are the key to those meatballs. I liked it so much, I actually had leftovers for breakfast this morning!

now you made me just have to

now you made me just have to make this lol...when you have leftover soup for breakfast than i know it is going to be worth it lol..thanks for your review!!


This was a nice twist on the classic Italian wedding soup with beans instead of pasta. It made for a heartier bowl of soup and I enjoyed both cabbage and a dark green in the soup. My changes were using some homemade turkey meatballs that I already had frozen (with half ground turkey and half hot Italian turkey sausage) and finishing the soup off with a bit of lemon and fresh dill for an extra "pop."

Really good and Tasty!!!

Added one more cup of broth...

Healty! My family loved it!

This soup is soooo good!! I ,like a lot of other people these days am trying to eat healthier. When I saw this recipe in the Feb. 2013 issue of my Eating Well magazine, I just had to try it. It is so worth it! I immediately froze a container since the recipe said that it would only keep for 3 days in the refrigerator or 6 months in the freezer. I will definitely be making this again! Thanks, Eating Well!!

This soup was awesome. Both

This soup was awesome. Both my husband and son-in-law loved it. That is saying a lot because they both think they don't like cooked cabbage or kale.
