1 Pot of chicken stock (say...6-8 liters)
1 pound ground beef
1/2 cup parmesan (green can is good)
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1 or 2 handfuls of fresh spinach
small sized pasta...acini di pepe is best
Set your stock simmering. Mix the ground beef, parmesan and bread crumbs and make tiny meat balls. I mean tiny! No bigger than dime sized. Drop them into the soup as you make them and let them cook. When they are all in there wash your spinach thoroughly and chiffonade it. Toss it in.
I cook my acini di pepe separately in some stock and let it soak it up. I serve about 1/3 cup pasta in a bowl of soup. Pasta in first, then pour the soup over top. That way the pasta doesn't get too mooshy.
the easiest way to make meatballs that I have ever found, is to take some uncooked Italian sausage, pull the meat out of the casings, and make the meatballs from that. Super easy, super tasty!
But yours sound good too!
