Ingredients

  • Meatballs:
  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 1/2 cup fresh bread crumbs
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh sage
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon pepper
  • Soup:
  • 8 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 10 cup torn mixed greens such as kale, chard and escarole
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 cup miniature pasta or orzo
  • Grated Parmesan, optional

Preparation

  1. 1. Make meatballs: Preheat oven to 350ºF. Mist a large, rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray. In a large bowl, combine meatball ingredients, mixing thoroughly with your hands. Roll mixture into 1-inch balls, moistening hands with water if mixture is sticky, and place in a single layer on baking sheet (make sure meatballs are not touching). Bake for 10 minutes, shaking sheet halfway through.
  2. 2. Make soup: In a large saucepan, bring broth to a simmer over high heat. Add meatballs, greens, 1 tsp. salt and 1/2 tsp. pepper. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 10 minutes. Stir in pasta; cook, uncovered, until pasta is tender, about 8 minutes, or as package label directs.
  3. 3. Season soup with salt and pepper. Ladle into bowls; sprinkle with grated Parmesan just before serving, if desired.
