Italian wedding soup with mini turkey meatballs and tortellini


I found a recipe for this a couple years ago I forget where but I have altered it over the years. The entire family agrees now the final recipe is a go to weeknight meal. The key is to make small meatballs and only add the amount of tortellini you will serve immediately. Finally I put the baby spinach in the bowls then pour in soup because leftovers are gross with 2 day soaked spinach.
