  1. This was wonderful. I didn’t have escarole, so used a bunch of random garden greens (radish tops, kale, chard) and threw in a bag of risotto-style Miracle Noodles. I would highly encourage fresh oregano though, if you can get it – it’s the main flavor I’m tasting and I love it!

  2. Made this last weekend- turned out wonderful! made about 30 mini meatballs. I added the pasta in the last hour, it wasnt mushy at all. I ‘ll use less spinich next time though. excellent

  3. YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ON THE NUMBER OF SERVINGS!!!!!!!!There is no way 1/2 lb. of meat is

    going to allow 5 or 6 meatballs per serving, and feed SIX people. You have here a recipe of a nearly

    ALL BROTH recipe with a few strings of greens and a dab of meat and a carrot slice or 2.

    • One thing you have to keep in mind is that in traditional Italian Wedding Soup recipes, the meatballs are quite small…about 1/4" – 1/2" in diameter. So given that measurement, you should be able to get at least 30 mini meatballs from your ground turkey.
