Kosher Italian Wedding Soup

 
Italian Wedding Soup

The term “wedding soup” is a mistranslation of the Italian minestra maritata, which is a reference to the fact that green vegetables and meats go well together (“married”). I am not sure that in Italy they actually serve such a soup at weddings. However, I will say that the marriage of meatballs, pasta, vegetables and flavor makes this soup a dish that my family loves any night of the week. It is a great twist on the classic American-Italian meatball and spaghetti dish that kids will devour!

I love soups in the Fall. The weather starts to get colder and all I want is a nice hot bowl of a soup. The best part is that soups can be a great way to get lots of vegetables and eat low calorie. This soup is a one pot meal, you can put rice in the soup or serve it on the side or leave it out. The greens and the chicken meatballs are really hardy enough on their own.
