Mealthy Tip

Be sure to use 85% lean ground beef for the most tender meatballs. The fat content will cook off while the meatballs simmer, resulting in a more flavorful, richer soup. For a healthier option, substitute the ground beef with ground turkey and use whole wheat orzo.

I don't buy orzo often, but I had a ton of it trying to wonder what to make next. I really enjoyed this soup as I can't pass up an opportunity to make meatballs. Like a red broth version of an Italian wedding soup. Loved the depth of flavor in this one and comforting for this cold weather.

This was my first time trying orzo, it was a little difficult to find, but found them on the pasta aisle. I really liked this soup, the meatballs were tender and flavorful.
