ISO Italian Wedding Soup recipe

OK, I am thinking this is just chicken broth with mini meatballs and parmesan and maybe some fresh basil. Anything I am missing? Is there an amazing recipe out there?

Some more greens--spinach or kale?

Here's a recipe I've used before. It's basic but tasty!

1 pound extra-lean ground beef
2 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup dried bread crumbs
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon dried basil
3 tablespoons minced onion
2 1/2 quarts chicken broth
2 cups spinach - packed,
rinsed and thinly sliced
1 cup seashell pasta or any other pasta
3/4 cup diced carrots

1 In a medium bowl, combine the beef, egg, bread crumbs,
cheese, basil and onion. Shape mixture into 3/4-inch balls and
set aside.
2 In a large stockpot heat chicken broth to boiling; stir
in the spinach, pasta, carrot and meatballs. Return to
boil; reduce heat to medium. Cook, stirring frequently, at a
slow boil for 10 minutes or until pasta is al dente, and
meatballs are no longer pink inside. Serve hot with Parmesan
cheese sprinkled on top.

I use this one from Giada De Laurentiis, I think its really good!

Italian Wedding Soup

Recipe Summary
Difficulty: Easy
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Yield: 8 servings

1 small onion, grated
1/3 cup chopped fresh Italian parsley
1 large egg
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon salt
1 slice fresh white bread, crust trimmed, bread torn into small pieces
1/2 cup grated Parmesan
8 ounces ground beef
8 ounces ground pork
Freshly ground black pepper

12 cups low-sodium chicken broth
1 pound curly endive, coarsely chopped
2 large eggs
2 tablespoon freshly grated Parmesan, plus extra for garnish
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

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.

Good Luck!

Hey you guys, thanks a bunch! Saving both of these. I think I am trying the spinach one first, endive is a bit tougher to find right now. I will post on my tests.
