The perfect "marriage" of exceptional ingredients
Contrary to popular belief, this soup is not actually wedding related but references the translation of its Italian name, minestra maritata or "married soup" - the perfect pairing of vegetables, herbs, spices and meat. It's warm, cozy aroma and deliciously satisfying combination of flavors is a welcoming invitation to friends and family gathered on a cold winter's day.
Acini di pepe pasta, onion, carrots, celery, whole grain bread crumbs, parsley, garlic, pepper blend, herbs and spices. Pasta contains semolina (wheat) flour.
You will need: 12 oz. turkey Italian sausage, 1 extra large egg white, beaten, 1 medium onion, chopped, 1 1/2 Tbsp. olive oil, 8 cups chicken broth, 3-4 cups chopped escarole.
Remove and discard casings from turkey sausage. Add breadcrumbs/ herb mixture and egg white into ground turkey. Form small meatballs by hand, 50-70. Set aside in the refrigerator. In a large stockpot, saute onion in oil for 2 minutes. Stir in contents of the larger soup seasoning packet, about 30 seconds. Add broth and bring to a boil. Add meatballs and simmer 20 minutes, covered. Bring to a boil; add pasta and escarole. Reduce heat to a simmer, cover and cook 10 minutes.
Made this today and it was delicious. I'm not a fan of turkey so I used a all natural italian sausage removed the casing and followed the directions. I definitely will order this again on my next order. I loved it.
