My teen loves this soup, so I make it often just for her. When she was younger I used to pack this in her thermos to bring to school as a hot lunch.br /br /The name "Italian Wedding Soup" as a reference to the "marriage" of greens and meat in the soup. A favorite in my house, this lightened up version is delicious and satisfying. If you want to keep it low-carb you can leave the pasta out.br /br /div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-xL0t7kQyn3k/UD4dHOliz2I/AAAAAAAAHaY/fZEVrOwcz34/s1600/italian-wedding-soup.jpg" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"img border="0" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-xL0t7kQyn3k/UD4dHOliz2I/AAAAAAAAHaY/fZEVrOwcz34/s1600/italian-wedding-soup.jpg" //a/divbr /br /My toddler will eat it without the greens. If you can't find escarole, any dark leafy green would be great. Serve this with a good quality grated cheese on the side!br /br /a href="http://www.skinnytaste.com/2009/01/escarole-soup-with-turkey-meatballs-52.html#more"b Click Here To See The Full Recipe.../b/a
