Submitted by: SINGER1024

Introduction

From Andrea From Andrea
Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    12-15 1/2 oz frozen turkey meatballs, quartered (Trader Joes has great meatballs)
    6 cups Chicken Broth (2 boxes of Imagine or Pacific Soup works well)
    1/4 cup chicken, chopped up. (one chicken breast)
    1/2 cup carrot, Diced small
    1/2 cup celery, Diced small
    Optional: 1 can Garbanzo beans (or other cooked white beans)
    1 cup bagged spinach salad or 1 bunch spinach, (stems removed)
    Garlic Salt, to taste
    lemon pepper, to taste
    1/4 cup Romano cheese
    1/4 cup tiny pasta (try mini Quinoa shells) , add during last hour of cooking

Directions

Pop the meatballs in the microwave for a minute or two on defrost, so you can quarter them.
Combine all ingredients in crock pot and cook all day on low or 3 hours on high.
If the pasta is added during the last hour of cooking, you will see pasta,
The first time I made it, I put it in at the beginning and it cooked down and thickened the soup some.
This soup freezes well, too!

    delicious! added great northern beans, didn't add the cheese, didn't add the chicken - it was very filling. Used reduced sodium broth and it definitely wasn't too salty. - 3/21/09

    This is one of my favorites. I did switch to whole wheat orzo to boost the fiber. For variety, I use different white beans and sometimes lima beans. - 4/4/10

    I made this for my share of a group dinner; it was a hit! Definitely not too salty. I used ground turkey, rolled into small balls, and skipped the beans. I didn't use the whole bag of spinach... it seemed too spinach-heavy as I was combining the ingredients, so I only used about 3/4ths of the bag. - 11/8/09

  • This was really great. I dropped the chicken and put in 4 chopped carrots and 3/4 stalk of celery hearts. The entire bag of spinach and 4 oz of chopped white onions.

    I used orzo for the pasta, white kidney beans and added a tablespoon of minced garlic and 4 cubes of frozen basil from TJ's. - 5/10/11

  • I used a mix of chicken broth and low sodium broth to cut down on the salt. When I popped in the pasta I also added fresh chopped parsley. Very good! - 5/10/10
