Letโ€™s make Italian Wedding Soup! ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿฅฃ๐Ÿง†

๐Ÿฒ In a soup pot, heat olive oil and butter and add in the onion, carrots, leeks and celery. Cook on a medium flame for about 10 minutes or until they soften a little.

๐Ÿฒ Add the meatballs and then add in the broth. Bring to a simmer and add in the pecorino cheese block. Cover and cook for about 15 more minutes, making sure the veggies are cooked,

๐Ÿฒ Lastly, add the baby spinach and cook until it wilts. Taste and adjust salt and pepper to your taste.

๐Ÿฒ Meanwhile, cook your pasta, drain and transfer it to a bowl. I like to add a little olive oil to the pasta so that it does not stick together.

๐Ÿฒ Serve with the pasta and top with grated Pecorino or Parmesan cheese.
