Ingredients

    Meatballs:
    1 lb ground chicken
    1 egg
    1/4 cup italian style bread crumbs
    2 T ground parmesan cheese
    2 T milk
    1 t onion powder
    1 t garlic powder
    1 t dried basil
    1 t dried oregano

    Soup:
    2 T Extra Virgin Oilve Oil
    1 large onion, diced
    1/2 bag baby carrots, chopped
    2 C fresh sliced mushrooms
    1 10 oz bag fresh baby spinach
    6 cups chicken broth
    2 cups water
    1/2 C orzo pasta (any small pasta works fine)

Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix together all meatball ingredients, shape into 3/4 - 1 inch balls. Place on sheet pan lined with foil and sprayed with Pam. Bake 10-12 min, turning or shaking the pan 2-3 times to brown evenly.
(I get 40 meatballs out of this recipe)

While meatballs are browning, add olive oil to a soup pot over medium-low heat. Sweat onions and carrots for about 5 min, adding seasonings towards the end. Add broth and water, bring to a boil, add orzo and let boil gently for 5 minutes. Remove meatballs from oven and add to soup, along with the mushrooms and spinach. Turn heat down and allow to simmer for 5 minutes.

Serve with grated parmesan and crusty bread (not included in calorie count).
Makes 8 1-cup servings of soup, 5 meatballs per serving.
