  • 1/4 cup Italian style bread crumbs
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1 Tbsp. parsley chopped
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 2 Tbsp. freshly grated parmesan
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. ketchup
  • 1/2 lb. lean ground turkey

Italian Wedding Soup Recipe:

  • 1 cup carrots diced (about 3 large carrots)
  • 1 cup celery diced (about 3-4 stalks)
  • 1 cup onion diced (about 1 small onion)
  • 1 Tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper
  • 1 tsp. Italian seasoning
  • 8 cups chicken stock
  • 1/2 cup acini de pepe pasta
  • 2 cup fresh kale chopped
  • shaved parmesan for serving


  • In a large bowl, combine all the meatball ingredients except the ground turkey. Once all is combined, add the turkey and mix and roll into 18 meatballs. Place on a baking sheet and refrigerate until ready to use.
  • Meanwhile, heat a cast iron pot onto medium-high heat. Add butter and olive oil. Sauté carrots, celery and onion until somewhat tender.
  • Season with the salt and pepper and pour in chicken stock. Bring to a boil for about 10 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender.
  • Add meatballs into the pot, dropping in individually to different spots in the pot.
  • Cook for about 2 minutes, then add the acini de pepe. Boil for about 8-10 minutes, or until the pasta is cooked to al dente and the meatballs are cooked through. (Meatballs will pop up to the top of the broth when they're cooked.)
  • Stir in the kale and cook until softened. Serve in bowls with shaved parmesan over the top. Enjoy!
