Alphabet Wedding Soup

Yields1 Serving

 3-4 cups chicken stock, preferrably with pieces of chicken in it
 1 carrot, peeled and diced
  cup alphabet or other small pasta
 about a dozen marble-sized meatballs, or small bits of sausage (uncooked)
 1-2 eggs
 ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
 a couple handfuls of fresh baby spinach, chard or escarole

Bring the stock to a simmer in a pot on the stove. Add the carrot, pasta and meatballs and simmer for about 10 minutes, until the meatballs are cooked through and the pasta is tender.


In a small bowl, whisk together the egg and Parmesan cheese; drizzle into the hot soup, stirring gently so that it doesn't completely blend in, but cooks in strands. Throw in the spinach and cook for another minute or two, until it wilts.


Season with salt and pepper, and serve with extra Parmesan cheese on top.
