We have been up to ceiling in leftovers here. So I thought I would try to find a recipe that would use some of them up. I used the recipe on the back of the frozen meatball package as a starting place. I had a veggie tray left over from a party and the meatballs were a partial package from an appetizer that I made Christmas Eve.
This is how the package recipe went:
Meatballs + Frozen Vegetables + Pasta + a can of chicken broth = Italian Wedding Soup
Seriously! Like that didn't scream
"HELP ME! I'm almost a recipe!"
So! That is what I did. I turned it into a recipe.
Bake the meatballs as directed. ( I used the turkey meatballs)
Chop fresh veggie selection ( I used onions, carrots, celery, and some leftover cauliflower)
Saute in 3 tablespoons of olive oil until tender,
add a teaspoon of minced garlic.
add 1 cup of small pasta ( I used Acini di pepe)
1 tablespoon of Herbs de Provence
Salt and pepper to taste
Simmer until the pasta is done.
And the TA DA! Soups on!
How simple was that!
