What to Make for a Simple Christmas Eve or Christmas Supper: Italian Wedding Soup
I usually make Italian Wedding Soup for our Christmas Eve supper and am posting the recipe again for those interested in a low-fuss, filling meal. The soup is incredibly easy, economical, and people really like it. They'll want seconds, or thirds, or .... The soup also is a nutritious "meal in one pot." Italian Wedding Soup is loaded with lots of carrots, spinach, and tender little meatballs. Dried basil and Parmesan cheese in the meatballs give them wonderful flavor, and breadcrumbs keep the meatballs light. The bubbling soup is great on a cold day and the perfect thing to serve for a casual supper. Add a salad and bread, and you've got a great meal. Want dessert? Christmas cookies and/or ice cream would be ideal! This soup will be a great foundation for a meal to serve family and/or guests when you need to take it easy.
