Hearty Meatball Soup

Mmmmm....so good!

I love soup.

I love making soup.

I also love the cold weather and we have been enjoying a long and lovely winter in Florida. I realize that I am in the minority proclaiming my adoration - but just the same I am happiest when I am not boiling! Since we have been experiencing more blustery and chilly days - I have been simmering soups for my family. This is a delicious soup for any time of the year.


Hearty Meatball Soup


Meatballs:
Mix together gently and then for form into 1" round balls:
1 lb. chopped meat
1 egg, beaten
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 c fresh Parmesan cheese
1/4 c fresh Italian parsley
1/2 c Italian bread crumbs
1/4 c hot water
kosher salt & fresh cracked pepper (to taste)

Soup:
1 onion, chopped
2 carrots, chopped
3 celery stalks, chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced

Saute in 3 T olive oil and 2 T butter until golden brown and soft.

CONCETTA'S RECIPES

The Kitchenettes ~ A Hospitality Club

Romans 12:13
Pursue the practice of hospitality.

The Kitchenettes is all about teaching and mentoring young girls in the art of hospitality. It is so much more than cooking or doing domestic tasks ~ hospitality is the very heart of God ~ a demonstration of pouring His love onto others. This group of young girls are learning the very nature and character of God as they serve people and sharpen their skills in homemaking.
