• 1 (48 fluid ounce) can chicken broth
  • 1 (10 ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 2 cups chopped carrot
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 1 egg
  • 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast halves – cut into chunks

In a large pot over medium heat, combine the chicken broth, spinach, onions, carrots and celery. Mix well and allow to simmer.

In a separate large bowl, combine the ground beef, bread crumbs and egg and mix well. Form mixture into 1/2 inch diameter meatballs and carefully drop them into the soup.

Put chunks of chicken breast into the soup and reduce heat to low. Allow the soup to simmer for 1 hour. Add the pasta 30 minutes before serving and season with salt and pepper to taste.
