Italian Wedding Soup

This is my daughters favorite soup. She requests it all the time! It has a lot of ingredients and a couple steps, but is really pretty easy and worth it!

You will need:
6 chicken breasts
4 quarts of chicken broth or water. I usually mix the two and use more bouillon.
2 cups of celery - chopped
1 small onion - chopped
1 t. salt
1 t. pepper
1 t. garlic powder
1 T Parmesan Cheese
8 bouillon cubes if using water/ 4 if using chicken broth
To add at the end:
1/2 box of mini type of pasta (ABC's, orzo, acini de pepe)
1 box of frozen chopped spinach.

1 lb hamburger
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t pepper
1/2 t. garlic powder
dash of parm cheese
1 Cup of Italian seasoned bread crumbs
2 eggs
(OR you can use premade frozen meatballs - let them thaw a bit before browning)

Cook chicken and next 8 ingredients until chicken is done. Remove chicken from pot and let it cool. Save broth! When cooled shred and add back to the pot/broth.

To make meatballs: Mix all the meatball ingredients together and roll into marble sized balls. Brown in frying pan. Drain on paper towels. Add to soup and bring to boil.

At the end:
Add 1 box of frozen chopped spinach and 1/2 box of pasta. Bring back to boil until pasta is tender.

Garnish with parm cheese and Italian croutons.
